A New Print Fundraiser for Baltimore Action Legal Team - BmoreArt

In Baltimore, a lot of people are organizing, including artists donating their work for various causes that all intend to disrupt the white supremacist system that takes the lives of Black people in America. One example of these efforts is a print fundraiser organized by artist Monsieur Zohore, in partnership with NY-based New Release Gallery and Palo Gallery. One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to Baltimore Action Legal Team, an organization that offers legal services to protesters including a bail fund. If you purchase a print from this fundraiser, all of that money helps get someone out of jail—which is especially critical due to the way Black people are disproportionately affected by the prison industrial complex.

Musician, Rapper, Performer: Deetranada - BmoreArt

In a 2016 interview with Lawrence Burney in True Laurels, Deetranada said “I knew I had a gift with words when I started getting in trouble for speaking my mind without being disrespectful or explicit, but simply for the fact I was speaking the truth that a certain group of people didn’t want to hear. That’s when I realized that rapping was what I wanted to do.”

Confronting White Violence: Readings and Resources - BmoreArt

In light of ongoing protests against police brutality and the need for white people especially to know how to confront white supremacy, Rebekah Kirkman developed this list of articles and resources on the subjects of protest, abolition, reckoning with white supremacy, and more.

Stepping Out to Step In: Theresa Chromati’s Commission at The Delaware Contemporary - BmoreArt

"I know that there will be a dialogue with work that’s in the canon. That’s to be expected and important. But it’s also really important for me to start and end my work from a place of intimacy. That’s how I connect with the viewer. It’s a very intimate experience that is based in me understanding myself as a woman and reflecting on the connection I have spiritually to other women before me."

The Internet Is Exploding: 10 Must-Read Articles This Week 5/31 - BmoreArt

So much happened this week and the internet was nearly too much for me to write about. Headlines, tweets, and Instagram posts were filled by Christian Cooper, Amy Cooper, George Floyd, Tony McDade, and Breonna Taylor. Lana Del Rey continued to double down on her post that targeted women of color, Doja Cat was accused of being racist, Jimmy Fallon was in blackface, Shaun King continues to sell “wokeness to white people,” and apparently Joe Biden is now determining who is Black. The internet fully saturated me this week.

Talk Therapy: ‘The Midnight Gospel,’ Candice Breitz, and ‘Dorktown: Seattle Mariners’ - BmoreArt

Candice Breitz’s Too Long, Didn’t Read wasn’t intended for the internet, it was supposed to be in a museum. It opened at The Baltimore Museum of Art on March 15, just before the museum closed to the public because of COVID-19, and now the installation has been turned into a flashy website. As a multichannel installation in a museum, its hours of video are hard to witness all at once, which is the point. On the BMA’s website though, this extended, entertaining lecture on sex work delivered by a 12-year-old (as if to say, even a kid can understand why sex work is work, so why can’t you?)—interrupted by singing, samples, auto-tune moans, one awful clip of our awful president, bursts of emojis, and more—can roll right along in the background, like a maximalist social justice podcast.

Today: Brandon Soderberg writes about Candice Breitz's "Too Long, Didn't Read," The Midnight Gospel, Dorktown: Seattle Mariners and the possible influence of podcasting on filmmaking.

MASTERS: Safiyah Cheatam - BmoreArt

With an undergraduate degree in filmmaking, Safiyah Cheatam initially found it challenging to convert her former film practice—primarily digital and completed on a laptop—into a studio practice with four walls and room for production of more three-dimensional art objects. A lot of her past studio work included mazes, labyrinths, synthetic hair, stamps, references to the self, world making, and Afrofuturism. An aesthetic movement that also serves as a liberatory framework, Afrofuturism traditionally includes narratives that use science fiction to build bridges from the past to the future, through various mediums including visual art, music, and literature. It is an artistic practice that allows Black people to dream and design future worlds and realities.

What’s Really Making Us Sick - BmoreArt

While the world fumbles with a devastating pandemic, a memoir about illness, care, pain, and profit wins a Pulitzer Prize. Published last fall, Anne Boyer's "The Undying" is about breast cancer, but it is also about the devastating treatment of cancer, pinkwashing, relationships, and the cruelties of capitalism. It is a challenging and instructive read in this period of mass illness and isolation, particularly now as states reopen early, meaning more of us are sure to get sick.

Rebekah Kirkman writes about the book, which recently won a Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction.

Messy Sex, Both Bold and Tender, in Garth Greenwell’s Cleanness - BmoreArt

Garth Greenwell's 'Cleanness' unfolds in a gorgeous triptych further refracted into trios of interconnected stories (nine in all), forming a constellation of moments in the narrator’s waning time in his adoptive country. Each vignette is a high-wire act, teetering along the razor’s edge separating shame and desire, passion and violence, actualization and obliteration.

BmoreArt Launches Print Issue 09: Craft with a New Subscription Service - BmoreArt

S U B S C R I B E to receive BmoreArt's next print edition, Issue 09: Craft by June 15 !!!!

This print journal was originally due for release on May 15, 2020 but, like everything else, this was interrupted by COVID-19.

We considered postponing publication until we can safely host large events again, but this seems unlikely for the foreseeable future. We discussed releasing this issue online instead of printing, but that felt disrespectful to the quality of work our contributors have produced.

Our solution to the problem is simple: we are now offering a subscription service. For it to work, we need to add at least 250+ new subscribers. If you are in a position to purchase a subscription to BmoreArt at this time, we thank you in advance. We are offering three subscriber levels to accommodate all kinds of readers.

Make It Scrappy, Keep It Real: Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund Supports Filmmakers During COVID-19 - BmoreArt

The cancellations of film festivals don’t just deprive filmmakers of a chance to show their movies to audiences, but it’s at festivals where movies end up being purchased for distribution. This is how filmmakers dogged by debt are likely able to climb out of it and also get their movie into the world beyond a couple hundred festival-goers at a time.

To get a better sense of what these industry disruptions mean for independent filmmakers here in Baltimore, Brandon Soderberg reached out to Annette Porter, a filmmaker and director of the Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund.

"I am a hip hop artist with a number of different styles. I like to both rap and sing, and my music is heavily inspired by a number of things that extend from 90s/2000s R&B, to trap music, to storyteller raps, and beyond. Professionally, what funds my artistry is my work in the Youth Development field. By trade, I’m also a youth advocate, educator, mentor, consultant, and facilitator."

Buying Baltimore Art for a Good Cause - BmoreArt

The purchase of one art print can provide 126 meals for Marylanders in need through a project called Images for Baltimore. Here is how that math works: Prints cost $50 each. Take away $8 for the cost of printing, and the remaining $42 goes directly to the Maryland Food Bank. Multiply that by three—according to the food bank, every single donated dollar gives them three meals’ worth of buying power—and you’ll have paid for far more than a nice archival print.

Today: Images for Baltimore raises money selling prints of local art (printed at Full Circle Fine Art Services) for the Maryland Food Bank at a critical time.

🎊OPEN STUDIO 🎊// Saturday, October 19, 2019 – 6 to 9 PM WHERE // Pigment Sauvage Art-Residencies –1427 Bolton Street, Baltimore From October 7 to 21, 2019, Pigment Sauvage – Art & residencies hosts the Montreal-based artist Natacha Clitandre. Her project «Mesures et variations sur l'errance / Metrics and variations on wandering" (Supported by the Canadian Art Council) will be presented on Saturday, November 19, from 6-9 PM. JOIN US for a friendly artist talk. 🎊🎊 PROJECT Inspired by her father’s family, who came all the way from Haiti, spent decades on the move and were disseminated throughout North America, Natacha wants the Baltimore residency to help her flush out the consequences of delocalization and examine its effects. In order to do so, she will be tackling the endless ebb an flow between an urge to control and a need to let go that was created by her loss of bearings, and she will be looking into the physiological and psychological repercussions of her movements in a new urban environment loaded with contrasts. As she is roaming through this Maryland city’s downtown area, she will get to experience uprootedness, become homesick and coldly behold her own remoteness. Through methodical analysis of these phenomena, she intend on pinning down the constraints they impose on her creative process and abandoning herself to an artistic ideal. She wants to live Baltimore from the inside, pit her mixed-race identity against the margins it has been relegated to or the accesses it was granted. She would like to find what makes her feel estranged from her home and loved ones, and see herself in the Other, lose herself amidst a sea of others. She wish to identify what triggers these variations in impressions, what surrounding information her body perceives and how it translates to sensations. This is how she will reclaim her agency. Every town is its own complex layout of ecosystems, each of which giving off a unique rhythm and atmosphere influencing our perceptions. During her residency, with the use of a portable electronic device equipped with sensors (CO2, air pressure, temperature), she will capture various elements which will allow her to detect the composition of her surroundings and collate these biological data. The smartwatch she will be wearing will receive all her biometrics (heart rate, sleep, pace), showing how her body reacts to the conditions it is subjected to. In parallel, she will also be writing down her subjective impressions on the locales she gets to visit, and she will take a few pictures of certain details. What will come out of this process is an interactive digital piece of art laying out the topography of places she will have been to through a visualization of the sensory fluctuations they provoke, as well as large-format photographs. She seeks to bind the circumstances her body will be plunged into with the physiological and psychological variations they generate. www.facebook.com/events/981070992242168
