Maryland Art Place announces two new calls for entry

Maryland Art Place (MAP) is currently seeking applications for a Regional Juried Exhibition opening in September 2013 and IMPACT 2013 at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Baltimore.

CALL FOR ENTRY: RegionalJuried Exhibition

Maryland Art Place (MAP) is seeking artists working in a diverse range of media for a Regional Juried Exhibition, opening September 19, 2013. The exhibition is intended to explore the contemporary, cultural climate of Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania. Submissions will initially be vetted by MAP’s Program Advisory Committee and juried by Kristen Hileman.

My good friend Kristen Hileman is the Curator of Contemporary Art and Department Head at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Hileman organized Seeing Now: Photography Since 1960 (2011) and Anne Truitt: Perception and Reflection (2009-10), the first full career museum retrospective of that artist’s work.  Hileman oversaw a full reinstallation of the BMA’s contemporary collection in November 2012 for the museum’s newly renovated wing for contemporary art.  At the time of the re-opening, the contemporary wing featured a major site-specific commission created by Sarah Oppenheimer and an exhibition of Zwelethu Mthethwa’s photography.

Prior to coming to Baltimore, Hileman was the Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C.  She was also adjunct faculty at George Washington University and the Corcoran College of Art and Design.  Before her appointment at the Hirshhorn, she was the curator of the Arlington Arts Center, where she organized exhibitions of work by artists from the Mid-Atlantic region. Hileman received her M.A. in Art History from the University of Maryland, College Park (2001) and her B.A. in International Studies from American University, summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa (1995).
