Scene Seen: Sérgio Sister at Goya Contemporary

Video by Daniel Contaldo for BmoreArt

Hrag Vartanian and Jillian Steinhauer, respectively editor-in-chief and senior editor of arts blog Hyperallergic, discussed the state of the art industry and its trends, as well as online art blogging, at a panel at the Maryland Institute College of Art moderated by Cara Ober (founder of BmoreArt) on March 9, 2015. The two Hyperallergic editors presented an informative discourse on art writing in the digital age to numerous students, faculty and community members. The BmoreArt event was sold-out, filling MICA’s Lazarus Center auditorium and making for a memorable evening. (DC)

After our talk at MICA, we headed to The Contemporary to see the Victoria Fu exhibit and then to The Lord Baltimore Hotel for a BmoreArt Happy Hour. Thanks to all who came out! The next day, I escorted Hrag and Jillian to as many Baltimore art spaces as we could fit in – BMA, Copycat, Goya Contemporary, Motor House, and Rene Trevino’s studio – before doing a presentation at Johns Hopkins for the online journalism class that produces Brine blog. Here are a few images from Hyperallergic’s visit to Baltimore. (CO)
