Maryland Art Place (MAP) is pleased to present: "ted[R]ad: Cultivating Collaborative Creative Community" a community-oriented installation-based exhibition that invites local partners and the public to participate in the realization and completion of the project.This site responsive exhibition is part of the ongoing international art making exchange project known as tet[R]ad".

Peck over a decade ago, this latest rendition will also include the work of Desmond Beach. Within this installation we aspire to cultivate a creative forum with members of Baltimore’s communities through a variety of art actions and social practices. We wish to foster restorative justice dialogues and build bridges between stakeholders with visual journal exchanges, collaborative drawings and assemblages that encourage collaboration in idea exchange and cultural production. The ultimate goal is to engage with the local community to give voice and agency to participants that develop meaningful connections.

Co-founder of tet[R]ad, David R. Modler will be in-residence in the Maryland Art Place gallery January 24 - 28 2022. He is looking forward to engaging gallery visitors in the various community focused collaborative art activities related to the exhibition. Participants will be invited to make a personal contribution to one of the visual journal, add color to one of Desmond Beach’s large scale portraits and make a dialogical drawing with the artist to be added to the evolving community conversation of drawings.

The exhibition is on view at Hotel Indigo Baltimore, located at 24 West Franklin St. from Jan 25th - March 18th. A public reception will take place March 8th from 5 to 7 pm in celebration of International Women’s Day. 

Join Maryland Art Place (MAP) & No Pix After Dark for an exclusive LIVE interview with photographer, E. Brady. Robinson covering her  body of work, SK8R GRLS. No Pix After Dark is a podcast hosted by Aaron Dante and will be held Jan. 27th 5:30pm EST in the library at the Hotel Indigo, Baltimore located at 24 West Franklin Street. No Pix After Dark  “Recognizes the potential impact of fascinating life stories of friends, family and those around the host in the city of Baltimore.

In spring of 2021, Robinson took up skating as a way to stay active and reconnect with friends outdoors during COVID-19. During these skate dates, she photographed  friends and eventually, a wider network of Baltimore-based female-identifying skaters. This work combines her love of athleticism, fitness and fashion photography.  These images, made at a moment where it felt like the world was reopening after over a year of closure and isolation during the pandemic, evoke a feeling of release and freedom.

Robinson completed her BFA in photography at MICA and MFA in photography at the Cranbrook Academy of Art.   Her background is in documentary photography and portraiture. The nine archival metal prints on display at the Hotel Indigo depict strong women amidst a backdrop of Baltimore monuments and sites. Locations such as Lake Montebello, Patterson Park, the Druid Hill Tennis Courts and the Ravens parking lot, signal the public landscape of Baltimore for those that know it well, in contrast to photographs made in the artist’s Maryland Art Place studio which utilize strobe and gel lighting to simulate the vibes of the 80’s roller skating rinks  reminiscent of Robinson’s childhood.

The skaters photographed include artists, musicians and female entrepreneurs; women in the creative scene in Baltimore, including Amy CavanaughCaitlin Gill, Jade DavisTina ThompsonBrittany WightLes GrayHayley FurmanJessica LaurynSophie Kluckhuhn and Wildège François.
