MICA presents Land/Trust, an exhibition of seven local, national, and international contemporary artists that centers on their relationships to the land and their positions as community activists, caretakers, and interventionists in an era of ecological crisis. In forging these intimate relationships, the artists illuminate neglected space, question imposed political and social boundaries, and engage in challenging conversations about ownership and possession of the ground we travel on and share everyday. *Accompanying the exhibition will be a panel discussion, artist talks, film screenings, and a Toxic Tour of East Baltimore led by Glenn Ross.
The exhibition has been organized by the Curatorial Practice MFA Class of 2019 under the direction of José Ruiz, Director of the MFA in Curatorial Practice program, and Gerald Ross, Director of Exhibitions.
Land/Trust curators: Jingyao (Joan) Cen, Jared Christensen, Rhonda Dallas, Maria Emilia Duno, Margo Elsayd, Joshua Gamma, Tracey Jen, Minzi Li, Allie Linn, Joseph Orzal, and Jiayi Zhong.
RECEPTION: Friday, January 19, 2018, 6 - 8 pm
