Bearing Witness

For his contribution to the Contemporary Museum’s Project 20 series, the museum’s founding director George Ciscle, now the curator-in-residence at MICA, suggested the undergraduate Exhibition Development Seminar that has been responsible for some of the more enervating local exhibitions in recent years. And with MICA art history, theory, and criticism faculty member Jennie Hirsh as the EDS instructor, a group of 18 undergraduates and seven professional mentors coordinated a sprawling, head-spinning exhibition of the mixed-media/installation work of husband and wife duo Bradley McCallum and Jacqueline Tarry involving five local institutions. McCallum and Tarry’s work dives straight into the heart of race, identity, and economic disparity with a deeply personal component, and spreading the work around Baltimore—no stranger to those issues—made for an acutely resonant poignancy.
