Chicago meets Baltimore at EMP’s Connect the Dots Exhibition

Baltimore’s EMP Collective has been lauded as one of the boldest “visions to change Baltimore” by Baltimore Magazine. In their mission to erode stereotypes of the white-wall gallery setting and bring new work to audiences on a visceral level, this week the EMP space will open Connect the Dots in their downtown Baltimore multi-use arts space.

Through the exhibition and performances, fifteen multidisciplinary artists examine the notion of indescribable human connection. Curated by dancer and choreographer Erin Rehberg (InterArts Media MFA 2009), the exhibition fuses dance, movement, visual art, video, and music into an electric gallery show and limited-run event.
