MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY… This is Current, Current, Current…Position 30 South Calvert Street, Baltimore, Maryland. Our vessel is going down! We require immediate assistance….All Hands on Deck!

Current Gallery, in conjunction with Off-Site Artscape, is proud to present Abandon Ship, an exhibition in preparation for the demolition of 30 South Calvert Street, curated by Michael Benevento, Monique Crabb, and Hans Petrich. For the past four years, Current has been a breeding ground for cultural production, opening onto countless collaborators, nourishing an ongoing conversation. Like a supernova before the collapse, we prepare for the building’s demolition with an ongoing collaborative exhibition that embodies 30 South Calvert. Welcoming you moments before bulldozers consume the building, and we slither out the anus of the temporary shelter, like a colony of parasites discharged onto the city.

This is the last exhibition at 30 South Calvert, an ongoing collaborative installation, which will be demolished with the building (but not the last exhibition for Current).

Current Gallery is an artist-run gallery, studio, and performance space, located in downtown Baltimore. Operating since November 2004, we are committed to showcasing emerging artists and ideas.
