Wow, I’m so honored to be featured on a blog about art and fashion in Baltimore- EatOnthis.com written by Abdu Ali. He reviewed the Installations final show and asked me to talk about my piece. CHECK IT OUT YO! www.Eatonthis.com Photos by Elle Perez of course.
During my sophomore year, I was in the Exhibition Development Seminar for two semesters at MICA. I was part of the curatorial team in a class full of many talented, smart and dedicated students. As a team, we developed a 7 venue city wide exhibition in Baltimore showcasing the most important works by artist couple Bradley Mccallum and Jacqueline Tarry. To learn more about their work, please visit http://www.mccallumtarry.com/. Check out our class site for more info here.
Review by the City Paper Baltimore 9/22/10
Best Big Show Bearing Witness ”For his contribution to the Contemporary Museum’s Project 20 series, the museum’s founding director George Ciscle, now the curator-in-residence at MICA, suggested the undergraduate Exhibition Development Seminar that has been responsible for some of the more enervating local exhibitions in recent years. And with MICA art history, theory, and criticism faculty member Jennie Hirsh as the EDS instructor, a group of 18 undergraduates and seven professional mentors coordinated a sprawling, head-spinning exhibition of the mixed-media/installation work of husband and wife duo Bradley McCallum and Jacqueline Tarry involving five local institutions. McCallum and Tarry’s work dives straight into the heart of race, identity, and economic disparity with a deeply personal component, and spreading the work around Baltimore—no stranger to those issues—made for an acutely resonant poignancy.”

Good news! I recently got a job curating monthly exhibitions at Caribou Coffee in Downtown, Baltimore. This is a wonderful addition to my curatorial projects. I love doing this so much. My favorite part of curating is finally getting to see the work in person, I get a rush of excitement for other artists. I love to represent them and help them get promotion because I totally understand how important this is. Ever since I was 8 years old, I started promoting myself and becoming an entrepreneur.
Look out for postings of invites to the openings!
Here are some pictures from the first show I hung “Systems of Classification” a solo show by Eleni Giorgos for the month of March. Coming soon, Minku Kim and Heather Day for April.
