Symmes Gardner, CADVC, Addresses Maryland House of Delegates

On Friday, February 24, Symmes Gardner, executive director of the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture (CADVC), addressed the Maryland House of Delegates as a special speaker on Black History Month. His presentation featured images of the CADVC’s major touring exhibition, For All the World to See, organized in partnership with the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture and now on display at the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee. Among the delegates attending the presentation were Speaker of the House Michael Busch and Speaker Pro Tem Adrienne Jones (’76 psychology). In his remarks, Mr. Gardner emphasized the importance of the Maryland State Arts Council, which provided significant funding for For All the World to See.

Maurice Berger film "Threshold" in the Whitney Biennial

Kudos Dr. Berger!

Our colleague Maurice Berger will have a short film featured in the Whitney Biennial, as part of Alicia Hall Moran and Jason Moran's five-day residency at the Biennial in May (9-13) --a residency entitled BLEED that will turn the whole fourth floor into a performance/video exhibition space. They have commissioned three films, one of which is Maurice's five-minute piece, THRESHOLD, that riffs on the crossing of thresholds--walking through doors, entering trains, cars, and buses, moving across stages, approaching podiums, and even the imagined passage from Earth to heaven--that have defined the voice, place, and aspirations of a people during the historic struggle for civil rights. He is in the process of producing the work now, and will write the museum wall label/text next month, so he'll have a bit more information to share about his participation in the Biennial later in the spring.

Our congratulations to Maurice on this great accomplishment!
