This exhibition is a part of the Social Contracts Festival, an interdisciplinary art festival being held in and around Baltimore, MD in the Spring of 2024. It represents the final year of the Co-Lab sponsored project, Invisible Architectures . Festival locations include Current Space, Maryland Art Place, StartUp at the Armory Gallery in Towson, MD, and more.

The term social contract started when philosophers from France to England started to think about the nature of humanity and the tensions that exist between the people who enact power and the people who do not. What are the agreed upon boundaries that exist within our social, family and political structures? How do these boundaries create or negate cognitive distance with what actually happens in any social theater?

As we approach another election year in the United States, agreements about what is included in an American social contract continue to be up for debate. Artistic interventions have the potential to offer us much needed insights and possibilities for our collective future.
