Kimberlé Crenshaw in her 2015 Washington Post opinion piece described intersectionality as “…Vulnerabilities that reflect the intersections of racism, sexism, class oppression, transphobia, able-ism, and more.”
This exhibition showcases the results of students’ explorations and examinations of their identities, and how the intersections of these identities impact their lives. Many of the photos represent identities that are seldom reflected in the media. Through the lens of reflective photography, and critical writing practice, students reveal and process both the power and the pain that lie at their identity intersections.

Baltimore photographer Patrick Joust captures the light that can be found in dark places. His images, sometimes reminiscent of painters like Edward Hopper, live in a space between the magical and the real, connecting viewers to the mystery and beauty of the city.
Screening of "Commercial for the Queen of Meatloaf" & "Corpse" Time: 6:00pm - 9:00pm Locations: School of Design, Owings Mills Campus Details:
Reception at 6pm; Screening at 7pm; followed by Q&A with filmmakers
University premiere of original films from FMI faculty Dina Fiasconaro and Christopher Ernst. Fiasconaro's short, Commercial for the Queen of Meatloaf, is a surrealist take on a 1950s commercial, where a bored housewife attempts to spice up her marriage by preparing a delicious meatloaf for dinner - what emerges from the kitchen is the "Queen of Meatloaf" incarnate, who proceeds to invade homes and wreak havoc.
Corpse, Ernst's feature adaptation of the classic weird fiction anthology "The King in Yellow" by Robert Chambers, uses a dreamlike kaleidoscope of mesmeric imagery and ambient sound design to tell the story of a group of young entrepreneurs who encounter a forbidden book that induces madness in those in read it.
