BETWEEN THE ACT AND MOTION presented by Little Berlin
Open Space’s Alternative Art Fair at Baltimore Artscape
July 18 – 20, 11am – 9pm
1714 Charles Street Baltimore, MD
From July 18 to 20 Little Berlin has been invited to present Between The Act And Motion, an installation and temporary performance venue in a recreated artist-reimagined Septa station as part of Artscape, America’s largest free arts festival. This three day annual festival in Baltimore regularly attracts over 350,000 visitors including artists, designers, public sculpture and exhibitions. Little Berlin’s installation is presented within Artscape’s Open Space Alternative Art Fair featuring artist-run and nonprofit art spaces.
Between The Act And Motion features a reimagined subway station with a wall and advertisements that visitors to the fair are invited to collage onto. Little Berlin members will treat their subway installation as a traveller’s connection point rather than a journey’s end. In addition to ongoing collage activity, the site will serve as an informal performance area populated by artists and musicians throughout the weekend. Although some of the performers are known in advance, a variety of unplanned performances are expected as well. Currently scheduled acts include Jarrett Gilgore, Telequanta as well as gallery performance artists and musicians Eileen Lilian Doyle, Rev. Eric Danger Clark, Fade Sunshine, MA JA KA, SEAARCH, and Visitor Ten.
As non-locals to Baltimore, Little Berlin’s exhibition bridges the gap between the two cities, allowing them to share their insight as a Philadelphia-based artist-run space. It reflects the grit and grime of the gallery’s surrounding neighborhood and the sense of waiting and timelessness that traveller’s experience, that expectant moment of relief before the train arrives to carry you forward.
