The Baltimore Museum of Art has announced new exhibitions and videos to the BMA Salon & BMA Screening Room.
The BMA Salon expands with new online exhibitions from seven more Baltimore-based galleries and artist collectives, providing financial support and visibility to ensure the longer-term success of Baltimore’s arts community. The presentations include images and details about the featured artworks available for purchase, background on the presenting organization, and contact details to access further information. Each gallery and collective will handle their own transactions and keep the proceeds in full. The BMA Salon was established with the vision to cultivate new audiences for participants and enhance their networks. The BMA has provided each participant with $2,500 as an organizing fee to support their work in creating the presentations.
The BMA Screening Room has expanded with 26 new videos by 14 Baltimore-based and Baltimore-born artists, bringing the total to 74 video works created by 35 artists on the website. All of these works will live as part of an evolving online repository, providing increased exposure for the artists during a moment when there are few exhibition opportunities and offering the museum’s audiences new dynamic content with which to engage. The BMA paid each participating artist a licensing fee, ranging from $500 to $750, to feature their work as part of the new platform. The BMA Screening Room is slated to feature 50 artists, adding artists and videos through time.Read More →
