The Contemporary Museum and MICA's Exhibition Development Seminar present Bearing Witness: Work by Bradley McCallum & Jacqueline Tarry, a mid-career survey of work by artists Bradley McCallum and Jacqueline Tarry to be shown at the Contemporary Museum, 100 W. Centre St., and various host venues throughout Baltimore, Saturday, May 8-Saturday, July 31.

This exhibition will feature more than 10 years of work by McCallum and Tarry and will premiere their Projection Series--a new self-portrait video and painting series composed of film stills and stage photographs that investigates the intersection of race and popular culture--as well as feature selections from earlier site-specific projects, which is artwork created for a particular space.

A collaborative artist team since 1998, Brooklyn-based artists McCallum and Tarry have worked and exhibited globally, seeking to surface and discuss issues revolving around marginalized members of society. Their work, which takes many forms including large-scale public projects, performance, sculpture, painting, photography, video and self-portraiture, challenges audiences to face issues of race and social justice in family, community and history.
