Bearing Witness: Works by Bradley McCallum and Jacqueline Tarry

A Survey Across Seven Venues in Baltimore


Organized by the Contemporary Museum and the Maryland Institute College of Arts (2009)

Bearing Witness is a multi-venue survey of over a decade of work organized by the Contemporary Museum and the Maryland Institute College of Art's 2009 - 2010 Exhibition Development Seminar. This exhibition has a dual mission to present McCallum and Tarry's civic, community- and advocacy-based projects with their studio- and gallery-based video, painting and installation works. The shared theoretical underpinnings and art- historical context for these works have rarely been discussed. Given the powerful content of the work -- addressing such themes as urban violence, homelessness, race relations and representation -- there are meaningful connections between the works and Baltimore's local issues, institutions, histories, and communities.
