The Pain and Power of Intersecting Identities Time: All Day Locations: Manning Academic Center - Owings Mills Campus - North Details:
On view: January 20 – December 17, 2018
Manning Academic Center Creative Lounge (S232), Owings Mills North Campus
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.

But first they must catch you | Ryan Lytle Time: 11:00am - 7:00pm Locations: School of Design - Owings Mills Campus - North Details:
But First They Must Catch You is a series of needle-felted, wool drawings on industrial felt. Lytle explores line weight, quality, and overlapping. The scale of the felt sheets allows the figures to be larger than life. The title of the series comes from Richard Adam’s novel Watership Down. In the beginning of the book, the narrator describes how rabbits have innumerable predators but will be equipped with the reflexes and abilities to combat them. Lytle’s wool drawings highlight the rabbit’s agility, reminding us that even the most vulnerable people will survive through tenacity, community, and instinct.

It's Kind of Pretty... | Nicole Dyer Time: 11:00am - 7:00pm Locations: St. Paul Companies Pavilion - Greenspring Campus Details:
Nicole Dyer’s artwork examines the human need for the presence of others and the contradictions of our daily lives. Her paintings and sculptures capture everyday objects and activities, imbuing them with nostalgia’s sense of significance but keeping them grounded in their mundane nature. Fleeting experiences can be over in an instant but preserved forever on social media. Emotions can be transferred from a crush to the memory of their cluttered living space. Food can bring us together or create an obsessive pursuit for physical perfection. By foregrounding the evidence of our lived experience, Dyer illustrates the interrelation of our socialization and our social media.
Exhibition: July 23–November 25, 2018
Reception: Wednesday, September 5, 2018, 4–6 PM
Artist's Talk: Thursday, October 18, 2018, 5:30–6:30 PM
