4/25: Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video, featuring Maren Hassinger
Guggenheim, 5th Ave at 89th Street, New York
suggested arrival by 3:15pm
Maren Hassinger will participate in a performance at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. This performance is in conjunction with the museum's Carrie Mae Weems exhibition, Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video.
January 24–May 14, 2014
Carrie Mae Weems is a socially motivated artist whose works invite contemplation of race, gender, and class. Increasingly, she has broadened her view to include global struggles for equality and justice. Comprehensive in scope, this retrospective primarily features photographs, including the groundbreaking Kitchen Table Series (1990), but also presents written texts, audio recordings, and videos. The exhibition traces the evolution of Weems’s career over the last 30 years, from her early documentary and autobiographical photographic series to the more conceptual and philosophically complex works that have placed her at the forefront of contemporary art. Although Weems employs a variety of means to address an array of issues, all of her work displays an overarching commitment to better understanding the present by closely examining history and identity. It also contains a desire for universality: while African Americans are typically her primary subjects, Weems wants “people of color to stand for the human multitudes” and for her art to resonate with all audiences.

Lecture 7:30 p.m., Reception to follow
MICA Bunting Center, Room 110
1401 Mount Royal Avenue
Great change begins with a single idea. When everyone's ideas converge, the possibilities are magnified. Social design is an evolving practice that supports collaborative environments, discovering creative solutions to our most complex problems through partnerships.
The practice of social design has changed the way we interact with the world. As organizational silos begin to break down, the collaboration between disciplines has proven to have an incredible impact on successful problem solving.
On April 29, MICA's Robert W. Deutsch Foundation Social Design Fellows will explain why a practice-based design approach has so much potential and how they put it into play. Afterward, join us in the Pinkard Gallery for a Q&A with current MASD students as they showcase their social design thesis projects. AIGA Baltimore and MICA Social Design are pleased to present this free event.

5/25: 6th International Photography Festival, Organ Vida
The theme of this year's sixth edition of International Photography Festival Organ Vida is Reflections. It encompasses the field of artistic documentary photography and will be discussed during the festival program. Reflections are a significant source of knowledge, cognition and understanding of oneself and the world. Since the world we live in today is facing tremendous changes along with ethical and economic challenges, we want to inspire photographers to face them and reflect upon them through the medium of photography. You can read more about the festival theme here.
The jury will announce the finalists at the beginning of July – ten finalists and five commended authors will display their works at the final exhibition during the festival week, and will be published in the festival catalogue.
Complete biographies of the jury members can be found here. Detailed terms and conditions and the application can be found on the Organ Vida website www.organvida.com
