Timothy Horjus: Solo Exhibition
Opens Sat Mar 9 5:30 – 7:30pm
Event Type: exhibitions
In his first large-scale, solo exhibition in Baltimore, Timothy Horjus presents work that evokes our current social and cultural reality by using the language of modernism in conjunction with traditional references to discuss our reliance on digitally-produced and transmitted information. He states, “I am attempting to evoke...the contemporary condition. This condition is one of awkwardness. We find our technology and culture increasingly pushing us away from ‘real’ experiences in lieu of digital ones, all the while we continue to utilize our digital devices to have more ‘human’ interactions.”
Closing Reception Sat Apr 13
Horjus' exhibition closes with a free Artist Talk hosted by Doreen Bolger, Executive Director for the Baltimore Museum of Art, 3-4pm. Followed by a free performance by Elm City Dance Collective, 4-5pm. The dance group presents Contemporanea, a piece conceived by Lindsey Bauer – dance artist, teacher, and choreographer. The work is inspired by the Brazilian martial art of capoeira, and incorporates elements of the art form with dance and music.
