this weekend


Desire, Destruction, Transcendence @ The Walters Art Museum
The Walters Art Museum is proud to present selected works from the John and Berthe Ford collection of traditional Indian and Himalayan art in visual dialogue with contemporary paintings by India born artist, Amita Bhatt. Bhatt derives her imagery from Hindu and Buddhist tantric sources infused with her understanding of Western philosophy. She explores classic themes of desire, conflict, struggle and transcendence as they manifest themselves in the present day. This thought provoking installation recognizes the power of visual expressions to articulate, to mobilize, to activate, and to provoke. Informed by tradition but speaking in the present, Bhatt’s works explore fundamental struggles and eternal tensions common to all cultures.
This installation will be in the Ford Gallery of South Asian and Himalayan Art. The Ford Gallery is located in the Hackerman House.
Exhibition Dates: October 31 - December 13, 2009
Opening Reception: Saturday, Oct. 31, 2009 3-5 pm

Sejayno, Melissa Moore & Layne Garrett @ 2640 Space
Baltimore's stalwart innovators Sejayno and Melissa Moore join DC improviser Layne Garrett for an evening of sonic merriment and wonderment. Working with a menagerie of homemade electronic instruments, field recordings, and perhaps a strange assembly of strings and electronics known colloquially as a "guitar", they promise an evening of time travel facilitated by light-sensitive oscillators, touch-sensitive circuits, aura-sensitive biospheres... possibly even some finger-sensitive strings! Sunday, Nov. 1, 2009 7pm $5 - $10 sliding scale suggested donation.
