The Contemporary Museum will introduce a new forum for discussion of contemporary art in Baltimore – New Art Dialogue Series – with a conversation with Dan Cameron, director and curator of the landmark PROSPECT 1 exhibition in New Orleans, on Thursday, February 5, 2009 at 7 p.m. The program will be held at Maryland Institute College of Art’s Falvey Hall.

Mr. Cameron will share his experience curating PROSPECT 1 and the impact that it had on post-Katrina New Orleans. PROSPECT 1 was the largest international exhibition of contemporary art presented in the United States. The critically-acclaimed exhibition included works by 81 artists from 38 countries, presented in more than two dozen galleries and public spaces throughout the city. The 10-week exhibit closes in late January.

Mr. Cameron is Visual Arts Director at the New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center.

Admission to the lecture is $10 for the general public, $5 for students, and free for members of the Contemporary Museum and MICA students.

The Contemporary’s New Art Dialogue Series presents lectures and conversations by distinguished artists, critics, art historians, and curators whose work is defining the field of contemporary art. The series cultivates critical discourse responsive to the cultural, social, and political issues of our time.

The New Art Dialogue Series is sponsored by the Louise D. and Morton J. Macks Family Foundation. Additional support is provided by Bodil Ottesen. For additional information, visit www.contemporary.org.
