Art AND: Pooneh Maghazehe - BmoreArt

Pooneh Maghazehe is driven by material, choosing as her subject a small memory or moment and drawing from it an abstract rendering of the human form, typically female, and the applied implications of that femininity. There is a simultaneous representation of things as they absolutely are—a Diet Coke logo or a girl or maybe a porthole—and the denial that any of these things are real at all. Scientists observe, but Maghazehe seems content to let the viewer draw their own conclusions from the artifacts she presents.

Collaborative Cinema: 'Children of Paris' and 'Mom & M' - BmoreArt

If you missed the opening night of the Maryland Film Festival on Wednesday, don’t worry, because you’ve still got almost a whole week ahead of you of films and programs to catch. Here is a close read of two films I’ve been anticipating, an intimate account of Baltimore artists and what it means to choose family.

At the Maryland Film Festival, Local is Global - BmoreArt

Executive director Sandra L. Gibson considers the festival “both a springboard and a culminating point” for the independent film community in Baltimore, which has been hampered by the coronavirus pandemic’s effects on both cinemas and productions themselves. Though the festival remains mostly virtual this year, as it was last year, it feels more celebratory than consolatory, with a slate of genre-bending offerings that work as well in the digital world as they do on the big screen.

The Lungdeep Breath of Loving: Katherine Bradford's Mother Paintings at Canada - BmoreArt

Katherine Bradford’s Mother Paintings feel exhaled into being. Not easily or simply, but breathed out from a profoundly interior place. The paintings speak of care, worry, relief, anxiety—the lungdeep breath of loving. The figures populating this series live among slabs of heavy, humid air, hypersensitized in their responses to claustrophobic and caustic atmospheres.

How Baltimore Fed Lucille Clifton’s Poetry - BmoreArt

Lucille, as she invited her students at St. Mary’s College to call her, was not a provincial poet. She was a poet of myth and spirit, of generations; of a displaced people; of a nation and world in need of both strength and healing. Born and educated primarily in upstate New York and living out her 26-year widowhood between California, Maryland, and as a visiting teacher in places such as Memphis and Durham, Lucille was not bound by place. Through the imaginative, mystical works she produced—works she insisted she received—Lucille transcended location and met the reader, you could say, at the heart of humanity, where place is merely background.

Radical Books: Red Emma's - BmoreArt

For 17 years, Red Emma’s has created community and preserved it. The cooperative book store, coffee shop, bar, and radical space named after anarchist Emma Goldman began with a lofty goal, John Duda, one of its founding members, explains: “Let’s create an institution that could be self-sustaining and let’s run this thing as democratically as we want the world to be run.”

Last week, Red Emma's Bookstore Coffeehouse announced they had purchased two properties in Waverly which they plan to make their "forever home." Read Brandon Soderberg's piece about Red Emma's from BmoreArt Issue 08: Archive!

Carrie Moyer on New Work, Teaching, and Art-Making in a Pandemic - BmoreArt

In mid-April, I spoke with Carrie Moyer via Zoom, both of us in our studios. Interviewing Moyer during the ongoing pandemic made me think about the expectations we put on ourselves and others and the unseen burdens that many of us carry while creating art. Moyer’s calm demeanor that has weathered the art world and beyond gave me solace during a time when having a studio practice can feel monumental and frivolous all at once. We talked about the reduced visual stimulation for artists during the pandemic, the perils of online teaching, and the act of painting when times get tough.

I’m tired. This week was hard. The internet was unbearable. There weren’t really any highlights, but here are some things that happened: Derek Chauvin’s conviction is not enough, Ma’Khia Bryant, the remains of two children killed by the MOVE bombing in Philadelphia, the fallacy of compliance, “this the country,” Slavery Saturday at Juilliard, ethical tourism, the ocean, the restoration of juvenile life without parole, and checking in on Black people.

A Generous Spirit: Roya Golpira & Gutierrez Studios - BmoreArt

When John Gutierrez died of cancer at the age of 45 in 2010, he left behind a business built on hard work and craftsmanship, and a community of artists and friends who valued his passion and warmth.

“He had an immensely generous spirit about whatever it was—to tell you the truth, to let you into his world, to make you feel like you were the most important thing. Those are the things that he’s left behind,” says Roya Golpira, his long-time partner. She now heads Gutierrez Studios and says of the decision to continue after his death that, “It wasn’t a choice for me. I loved this place and I loved what we had created.”

Today: Nora Belblidia's feature on Gutierrez Studios from BmoreArt Issue 09: Craft.
