Dark City: TT The Artist to Release New Club Music Documentary – BmoreArt | Baltimore Contemporary Art

When TT The Artist brings her Baltimore club music documentary Dark City: Beneath the Beat to the Parkway Theatre June 26 and the Reginald F. Lewis Museum June 28 for first-look screenings, she’ll be putting the final touches on an idea that’s been kicking around her head for more than a decade.

The musician, producer, record label founder, and now director first started thinking about making a club music documentary when she was a Maryland Institute College of Art undergrad. A Florida transplant, she first heard club—Baltimore’s homegrown dance music, an explosively heady amalgamation of house, Miami bass, hip-hop, and attitude—on the radio before she started hitting one of the nightclubs where club thrived in the 2000s.

Green Curry, Yellow Curry; Blue Pill, Red Pill: Rirkrit Tiravanija at the Hirshhorn – BmoreArt | Baltimore Contemporary Art

"Eventually, it might dawn on you that in studying the drawings you are looking at a drawing of a photocopy of a newsprint reproduction of a photograph of a protest. We are a number of steps from the source—which is striking, given that the Hirshhorn itself looks directly onto the National Mall, where so many meaningful protests have taken shape. For a moment, a thought occurs: Is Tiravanija offering a cool critique of anyone who maintains a safe distance from protests, relying upon the easy vicariousness offered by reproductions? The idea appeals—but then quickly recedes, as we are distracted by the din and the smell of curry in the middle of the room. But might that, then, actually be the point of the installation? Is Tiravanija also critiquing the vapid and self-congratulatory liberalism of an art world that gathers around free food and contents itself with images of protest rather than the hard work of actual protest?" -- Kerr Houston on Rirkrit Tiravanija 's "(who’s afraid of red, yellow, and green)" at Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden curated by Mark Beasley

Listening to the Saints: Oletha DeVane at the Baltimore Museum of Art – BmoreArt | Baltimore Contemporary Art

"An eye-grabbing collage of beads, mirror fragments, fabric, and bullet casings figure into the work’s realization. The Mary figure stands in the expected our-lady-of-the-sorrows pose, head bowed, arms down and palms out. Her skin is black. Sprouting from her head is a constellation of tiny orbs attached to pins, as if the usual seven swords have multiplied into a halo of black dots noting where a body fell on a city map. She’s less the iconic church Mary but a figure far more potent, the Black Madonna of Czestochowa or the Haitian vodou spirit Erzulie, and if you grew up with a Santería-adjacent variety of Mexican Catholicism, you’ll be tempted to genuflect before her." -- Bret McCabe on a sculpture by Oletha Devane-Kojzar, originally published in Issue 06: Home of the BmoreArt Journal of Art + Ideas. The artist's "Traces of the Spirit" just opened at The Baltimore Museum of Art's Spring House. http://www.bmoreart.com/2019/06/listening-to-the-saints-oletha-devane-at-the-baltimore-museum-of-art.html

"My feelings about Pride are immense, but then Pride is immense. The banners, the signs, the leather and the glitter, the noise, the odors, the bubbles and the pom-poms, the dogs in rainbow tutus, all of it coming together in a shared discourse of struggle and celebration—this could have been overwhelming. But I was mostly just soaking it all in. I felt delirious. I also felt at home." -- Priyanka Kumar on Baltimore Pride 2019 (also the writer's first Pride in the US), with photos by Maria Sanchez.

"Barbara Bourland’s new novel about a young female artist earnestly making paintings in NYC in the early ‘90s captures all of the magical pain of being an artist: the stupid crazy miracle of an art career, the romantic lies artists tell themselves, the f**ked-up unfairness of the art market, the callow superiority of art-world gatekeepers, the brave but fragile ways artists hurl themselves into action, the mirage of others’ success."

Art AND: Jani Hileman – BmoreArt | Baltimore Contemporary Art

A current resident artist of the Creative Alliance, Jani Hileman is one of the nonprofit’s youngest live-in residents ever. Hileman keeps herself busy assisting photographer
Joseph Hyde (a BmoreArt contributor), working at Clay Monster Pottery, and pitching in around the Creative Alliance—a favorite job is hanging up the marquee letters. Suzy Kopf met up with Hileman in her studio at Creative Alliance to talk about why Baltimore is a great place to live as a young artist (despite those pesky red light cameras!), feminism is essential, and clothes are a drag.

Bonnie Jones’s Hyphenated Spaces – BmoreArt | Baltimore Contemporary Art

There’s a Japanese folktale that says if you fold a thousand paper cranes you get a wish. “The aim is 1,500, maybe I have like 1,100,” Bonnie Jones says. Most of those are hanging in the window of Cardinal Space, where Jones’s first solo gallery show, 1,500 Red-Crowned Cranes, runs through June 15. The title is a reference to the endangered birds that winter in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea, a 160-mile-long no man’s land which has become a de facto wildlife preserve. The area was established in 1953 as part of the Korean Armistice Agreement to end the Korean War, and it serves as a buffer between the two countries.

“There was something about that space that spoke to me from the perspective of thinking about Korean identities or Asian-American identities, hyphenated identities, in between one thing and another thing,” Jones says.

Nora Belblidia wrote about Bonnie Jones and her installation at Cardinal, which closes this weekend.

Tax Tips for Artists, How to Price Your Work, and Museum Acquisitions: Connect + Collect III with Doreen Bolger and Taha Heydari – BmoreArt | Baltimore Contemporary Art

TIPS FOR BEATING THE SYSTEM! "I always counsel artists about the process of donation and sales..." says Doreen Bolger. "For example, artists are always exchanging work with each other. But if you exchange work with a friend, you should each hand each other a check for $100 or some established value. And then you attach the cancelled check to the reverse or a xerox of it to the reverse of the work, because then you’ve paid for it and you can take an appreciated value when your best friend becomes a famous artist. This just beats the system a little bit, which I think artists should be able to do. I’m hoping that eventually the tax code will be changed so that artists can contribute work at its appreciated value to museums because it would be so important for the preservation of artist’s reputation and the growth of collections."
