Did you know? Gallery CA is a contemporary arts space located on the ground floor of the City Arts building, which houses 69 artist live/work spaces.
What: Check out the art exhibit Stranger Self, which is curated by Gallery CA Curatorial Interns, Haley Palmore and Joseph Shaikewitz. The exhibit presents the work of four artists who approach the stranger through a variety of lenses: Nancy Daly, Jackie Milad, Benoit Paillé, and Laura Payne. Did you know? Stranger Self has a shelf-life from February 22 to March 29, 2013.
Interns Haley and Joseph describe the exhibit in the following way: "shifting temporality of today’s relationships reveal just as much about how we communicate and coexist as it can about one particular subject. As the four artists in Stranger Self reveal, these encounters can range in terms of length, proximity, intimacy, and a number of other factors. At the same time, each artist exercises a unique way of both presenting and representing their ‘stranger’ subject, consequently giving the viewers a look into these artists’ assumptions and manifestations of these strangers. While day-by-day and decade-by-decade, relationships continue to change, Stranger Self provides a snapshot into contemporary encounters and the variety of means through which they evolve into works of art."
Who: Stranger Self is officially open to the public for free on February and the opening reception listed below is free as well.
When: Friday March 1, 2013 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where: Gallery CA ~ 440 East Oliver Street, Baltimore, MD 21202
