The Hexagon, in conjunction with My House Gallery (Philadelphia), presents: Baltidelphia, an experimental collaboration organized by Phuong Pham (the Hexagon) and Alex Gartelmann (My House). The Baltidelphia exhibition features 20 Baltimore artists paired with 20 Philadelphia artists who were asked to collaborate/correspond through whatever means they chose–facebook, text message, twitter, carrier pigeon, postal mail, sky-writing, etc. Rather than get lost in the flood of tweeting that flickrs to your tumbl that feeds to your blog (LOL smileyface), Baltidelphia embraces communication, distance, and geography as points of departure to create a project.

Baltidelphia will be exhibited in both Baltimore and Philadelphia, with selections of the projects being displayed in each spaces.

1825 N. Charles Street
