The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture presents States of Becoming, an exhibition curated by Fitsum Shebeshe and produced by Independent Curators International (ICI). States of Becoming examines the dynamic forces of relocation, resettling, and assimilation that shape the artistic practices of a group of 17 contemporary African artists who have lived and worked in the United States within the last three decades, and informs the discourse on identity construction within the African Diaspora.
UMBC Theatre presents shOUT: The Queer Theatre Project directed by Gerrad Alex Taylor, with musician direction by Andrew Hann. Facilitated by director Gerrad Alex Taylor, designer Eric Abele, and dramaturg Susan McCully, shOUT celebrates LGBTQIA+ playwrights, characters, and innovations. The performance includes scenes, songs, and monologues drawn from plays that show us that queer theatre history IS American theatre history. An exhibit of costume design and dramaturgy will accompany the performance.
