On the Mind: Artist Talk featuring Mónica López-González and Jon Malis.
Wednesday, March 11 at 7 pm

Maryland Art Place
218 W Saratoga St, Baltimore, Maryland 21201

“On the Mind” is an exhibition that explores varying perspectives on the brain by artists Mónica López-González, Jon Malis, Lee Gainer & Nancy Andrews.

Mónica López-González takes a detailed look at our minds on creativity. Through her studies on improvisation she unfolds what happens when one part of the brain assumes all responsibility in the creative process, while the other part of the brain quite literally lays dormant. Monica states, “I use both improvisatory techniques within black and white photography, and musical improvisation within cinema and theatre to explore the process of spontaneous creative thinking and emotion perception.”

Artist, Jon Malis explores the brain as an object and early attempts to capture, read, preserve and understand the brain. Through his photography we, the onlookers, may view the brain as both terrifying and beautiful. His images examine an archive of hundred-year-old scientific studies of the human brain, produced by pathologists at Saint Elizabeth’s Hospital, one of the oldest mental health institutions in this country.

Admission is FREE, no reservations required

ABOUT THE ARTIST: “I view art making as a form of intuitive, symbol magic, where the act of making becomes a devotional practice that is both ecstatic, and playful.” Gina Alexandra Denton is a visual artist and performer who has lived, worked, and practiced in Baltimore City since the year 2000. She received her BFA in Fiber Arts from The Maryland Institute College Of Art in 2004.
