Frederic Nauczyciel & Pete Cullen | Opening Reception
Tuesday, December 19th: 5-8 pm

Hotel Indigo
24 West Franklin Street: 21201

Join us on December 19th at 5 pm for the opening reception of Frederic Nauczyciel & Pete Cullen at Hotel Indigo, hosted by Maryland Art Place.

Frédéric Nauczyciel is French artist who works between Paris and the US. He uses the media of photography, video, and performance and is inspired by dance, cinema, and American photography. In his work, he has explored the complexity of social life, be it rural or urban. He employs a nuanced type of portraiture that treats his protagonists in the context of the fabric of their surroundings.

Pete Cullen is a Baltimore-based American artist born in 1981. He received his MFA from the Maryland Institute, College of Art in 2009. He is currently an adjunct instructor at the Community College of Baltimore County.

<><><><><><><><>Beyond Flight: Birds in African Art
Wednesday, December 20th – June 10th, 2018

Baltimore Museum of Art
10 Art Museum Drive: 21218

This exhibition presents approximately 20 works that illustrate the honored place birds hold within numerous African cultures. Inspired by our recent acquisition of a rare Pende Gitenga mask of the early to mid-20th century, the exhibition considers the role of birds within initiation, healing, and harvest rituals; within home décor and security; and within hunting practices. Long considered wondrous beings that transcend known worlds, birds have enjoyed a strong and steady presence in African life for centuries. Included are works that cite birds by material or motif made in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Nigeria.

This exhibition is co-curated by former Associate Curator of African Art Shannen Hill and Interim Associate Curator of African Art Kevin Tervala.
