Maryland Art Place (MAP) is pleased to open its first exhibition to the public since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Long in the making, SEEN, curated by Josh Sisk, Joe Giordano with support from Audrey Gatewood, represents a comprehensive and inclusive overview of music with a heavy emphasis on Baltimore Indie, Rap and Hip-Hop genres and the photographers that captured this important time.
Baltimore’s music scene has been on the rise during the last 20 years. SEEN includes images of artists such as KSwift whose untimely death led to the 92Q KSwift Memorial Scholarship Contest and Internship Program in 2009, to indie all stars such as Beach House who have achieved international fame since releasing their first album making Pitchfork’s Best Album list in 2008.
The exhibition’s inception came to MAP from local photographer and former Board Trustee, Joe Giordano and was produced in partnership with WTMD radio who is creating a documentary segment on the last 20 years of Baltimore music. The documentary will be screened at MAP in November (details to come.) In the interim, hear more by tuning into WTMD Towson Radio Tuesday, September 15 at 9pm and Sunday, September 20 at 4pm. Collectively MAP & WTMD Radio thank the PNC Foundation for their support of this important exhibition.
