DESCRIPTION

Using images of El Greco’s The Repentant St. Peter(c. 1600–1605 or later) from the collection, Baltimore-based artist Hildebrandt explores baroque themes of high drama, spectacle, and spatial movement. By converting a series of images into a video sequence, the artist connects painting, photography, and film.


INTERSECTIONS

Intersections is a series of contemporary art projects that explores—as the title suggests—the intriguing intersections between old and new traditions, modern and contemporary art practices, and museum spaces and artistic interventions. Whether engaging with the permanent collection or diverse spaces in the museum, the projects suggest new relationships with their own surprises.

Many of the projects also riff on the nontraditional nature of the museum's galleries, sometimes activating spaces that are not typical exhibition areas with art produced specifically for those locations.
