Featuring Baltimore Designer, KENN HALL

Thursday, March 7th @ 7pm

Maryland Art Place (MAP) in collaboration with Baltimore-based fashion designer Kenn Hall is proud to present Merkin Dream II, a runway show. The first Merkin Dream show was held during the 100th Anniversary of the women’s suffrage movement during the Covid pandemic. At that time MAP leaned heavily on themes of women’s rights, sex work as work, body image, digital euphoria and absurdity.

This March we aim to take a look at the merkin through the lens of haute couture. “Very recently  John Galliano’s latest Maison Margiela Artisanal show went viral. In the light of the proliferation of perfectly plucked porn stars many are worryingly blasé about, the Edwardian-esque figures were rather quaintly refreshing. The show was also notable for its embrace of a swathe of body shapes,” says Victoria Moss  for the Standard.

Merkin Dream II will be an exclusive event and limited to only 75 guests due to capacity limitations. MAP is located at 218 West Saratoga Street between Park and Howard Streets just within the Bromo Arts & Entertainment District.
