Come see this beautiful photography exhibition curated by Baltimore artist and curator, Elle Perez. This is my first time participating in an all photography show. This photo is part of a series I did during Spring Break (March 2010) dealing with portraits of home, absence vs. presence, and my neighborhood in West Miami, Fl.

"Bearing Witness" presented by 2009-2010’s Exhibition Development Seminar

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.”

Curator for Caribou Coffee

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.

In March, I was honored to exhibit for the first time in Baltimore outside of MICA at the Light Gallery with other local artists at the “Works on Paper” exhibition. They chose an experimental collage I did last summer 2009 during my NY studio program. Here are some photos, enjoy! I also bought a print at the show to add to my print collection. Thanks to everyone who came to the opening!
