Peace Floods the Body: Bobbi Rush's 'Language of the Crow' - BmoreArt

The opening words of Bobbi Rush's Language of the Crow bring us into the middle of an assertion of absence and endurance: “… And so i must carry on without you.” The line, which suits the mood for this entire year of longing and adaptation, sets the tone for the rest of the text, an exploration of major shifts and growth through short, free-verse dispatches that explore and praise divinity, roots, water, blood, flesh, fluidity, and embodiment.

Today: Teri Henderson reviews Bobbi Rush's new book of poetry, a welcome respite from a constant barrage of psychically draining digital information.

The Internet Is Exploding: 10 Must-Read Articles This Week 10/4 - BmoreArt

The internet was a mix of amazing profiles, personal essays and long reads, and batsh*t American politics. Highlights: Issa Rae, Michaela Coel and Donald Glover, Jeremy O. Harris, the concept of lifestyle, survival diaries, notes on notes, the presidential debate, Trump’s taxes and testing positive for COVID, and swearing parrots.

Bringing You Back to You: The Acme Corporation Finds Its Audience Through the Mail - BmoreArt

The Acme Corporation’s newest production, The Institute for Counterfeit Memory, is a play that arrives in a cardboard box by mail. The contents of the box—an MP3 player, a clip-on reading lamp/stage light, cue card diagrams, a compact mirror, a personalized letter, a glass jar, a 35mm Kodachrome transparency, a music box, and more—are carefully layered and arranged, allowing the audience to unpack the box/play according to the directions/script.
The play questions the accuracy of our memories, the value of truth, and how memory itself may be even more subjected to commodification in “these uncertain times.”

Seeing What Happens: High Zero Goes Virtual - BmoreArt

For the first time in its 22-year history, the High Zero Festival of Experimental Improvised Music will not be bringing artists and musicians from around the world to Baltimore to share a stage with local artists and musicians just to see what happens—for the obvious pandemic reasons. As with so many other art, film, music, and stage endeavors this year, High Zero is going virtual, collaborating with similarly minded artists and festivals in Chicago, Santa Fe, and Seattle to curate a streaming event starting this week on the festival’s Twitch channel.

Today: Bret McCabe writes about how this year's High Zero Festival of Experimental Improvised Music will adapt to the screen.

Schroeder Cherry's Pillars of the Community - BmoreArt

Each of Schroeder Cherry's assemblage portraits creates a sense of familiarity, especially through the everyday objects and materials he repeatedly incorporates as symbols for larger questions and preconceived notions of American history and culture.

"The lines between craft and fine art are diminishing more now because those designated as craftspeople are so talented and using the same principles as fine artists in terms of line, color, shape, and form in their production, blurring those lines."

The Glenstone Museum’s Aseptic Aesthetic - BmoreArt

Nestled into an expanse of rolling hills on the grounds of the billionaire owners’ private estate, Glenstone feels at once made for this virus-ruled world and, at the same time, far removed from it. The effect is somewhere between that of a day spa and a lunar colony, plus art.
When I booked my visit more than a month in advance, I anticipated a cathartic return to an experience I’d missed for over five months. Our time apart, I figured, would make the reunion all the more powerful. I instead left the museum feeling overwhelmed by its uncanny undercurrent, and yet underwhelmed by my own engagement with the art.

Today: Maura Callahan writes about Glenstone Museum.

RBG died, how the US Senate fails its citizens, queer theory, when do models own their image, the real Paris Hilton, Enya, an oral history of Wishbone, remembering Jimi Hendrix 50 years after his death, Kanye’s Universal contract, and banning TikTok and WeChat.

Artist Collaboration Puts Cash and Specially Designed T-Shirts Directly into Squeegee-ers’ Hands - BmoreArt

Artist Toyomansi commissioned Reem Unknown to design a T-shirt that says "Tip Your Local Squeegee Boy," then sold the shirts through Bandcamp. “I thought that was the coolest thing ever. I’m all for the squeegee boys,” Reem says. “They just trying to get by as best they can and make an honest living. I could never hate on someone, especially another black man trying to make a better situation for themselves.”

60 shirts were sold, and an additional 65 shirts were printed and given to squeegee boys—along with $530 cash, netted from the Bandcamp sales. Look out for another T-shirt design in the coming weeks.

The Girls Aren’t All Right - BmoreArt

These passionate, dedicated filmmakers have captured unforgettable moments here, and without their access we would never have met these women. Without trans persons behind the camera, however, the spectacle of The Right Girls offers few answers for those of us who have a personal stake in the outcome of this journey.

Today: Rahne Alexander reviews the documentary The Right Girls, which follows a handful of young transgender women from El Salvador and Honduras who traveled with the 2018 caravan of asylum-seekers from Southern Mexico to the US border at Tijuana.

The Illusion of Free Time: Visual Diary by Elena Volkova - BmoreArt

Like many introverts, I started this quarantine thinking about opportunities the isolation could uncover—so much time for reflection, so much time to start new projects, so much needed time to spend with family. I could finally not leave the house, stay home and do what I love: observe light and reflect on my subjective domestic experience.

Staying at Home with Designer Patrick Sutton - BmoreArt

For Patrick Sutton, good design is based in desire and a little bit of impulse. He believes in centering an interior space as a reflection of the planned occupants and works closely with his clients—from hotels like Fells Point’s Sagamore Pendry to restaurants and private homes throughout the DMV—to understand not just who they are but who they would like to be. Mindfulness and aspiration are deeply embedded in his layered interiors which mix materials, antiques, and modern aesthetics with influences from all over the world.

Today: Suzy Kopf interviews Baltimore-based designer Patrick Sutton, who talks about designing based on personality, following intuition, and assembling the space to dream.
