A Discussion with PROSPECT 1 Director and Curator Dan Cameron – Inaugural Program of the New Art Dialogue Series

Thursday, March 12, 2009
7:00 p.m. in Falvey Hall
Maryland Institute College of Art
1300 Mt. Royal Avenue
Bolton Hill, Baltimore

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, March 12, 2009 at 7 p.m. The program will be held at Maryland Institute College of Art’s Falvey Hall. The program has been rescheduled from its original February 5 date.

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 exhibition closed in January 2009. 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 will present lectures and conversations by distinguished artists, critics, art historians, and curators whose work is defining the field of contemporary art. The series will cultivate 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.
