Abandon Ship — July 10 – demolition (awwwwwwww… really? man.)
curated by: Michael Benevento + Monique Crabb + Hans Petrich
Closing reception August 8, 7-10pm
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!
An exhibition in preparation for the demolition of 30 South Calvert Street. 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.
Artworks will be added throughout the duration of the exhibition, featured artists include:
Adrian Lohmüller, Andrew Liang, Andrew Shenker, Alex Worthington, Aron Fay, Audrey Lea Collins Petrich, Ben Fisher + Lou Joseph + Mary Lewandowski, Brendan Sullivan, Dirck Ober, David Sloan + Thea Canlas, Elena Johnston, Erin Womack, Eric Leshinsky, Fred Scharman, Gary Kachadourian, Ivan Hernandez Quintela, Jackson Frazier, Jacqueline Schlossman, Jake Dibeler, Jason Kachadourian, Jan Razauskas, Jason Smith, Jonathan Taube, Lee B. Freeman, First Surface – Joe Ride + Sum, Julianne Hamilton, Julianna Dail, Justin Lucas + Alia Diaz + John Bohl + April Wood + Magnolia Laurie + Graham Coreil-Allen, Lara Antal, Leah Vogely, Lotfy Nathan, Neal Reinalda, Phuong Pham, C. Ryan Patterson, Spencer Compton, Symmes Gardner, Vestal Abbott, Vishwam Velandy, Russell Kelbaugh and more
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).
Organized in conjunction with Offsite Artscape 2009.
