Current Exhibition

PARADISE NOW

August 29–October 15, 2016 

 

Opening Round: Thursday, September 1, 7–8 pm, doors at 6 pm

 

This fall, the Stamp Gallery presents Paradise Now, a project by Baltimore-based artist Kimi Hanauer featuring work by Sydney Spann, Michael Stephens, and Nikki Lee. Paradise Now is a game of unequal circumstances and varying objectives. From August 29 through October 15, Paradise Now invites visitors to develop their potential as players by participating in gaming rounds that, over time, will collectively alter and reinvent the game’s score thus changing the rules of the space itself. 

Visitors are invited to experience the game’s opening round on Thursday, September 1, 7–8 pm, doors at 6 pm, featuring live performances by Sunatirene (sún-ah-chur-ráin), Michael Stephens, and Nikki Lee.

Paradise Now is curated by Stamp Gallery docents Christopher Bugtong (UMCP ’17), Grace DeWitt (UMCP ’17), and Shay Tyndall (UMCP ’17), all current undergraduate students at the University of Maryland—College Park. An incubator for emerging artists and curators, the Stamp Gallery regularly presents exhibitions curated by undergraduates. 

Paradise Now features a Pop-Up Art Library made possible by THE ART LIBRARY located at 2213 Parren Mitchell Art Sociology Building at the University of Maryland. Special thanks to THE ART LIBRARY for making possible the exhibition's reading room, where visitors can enjoy a selection of books related to themes explored by the artworks on view.

About

Located on the first floor of the Adele H. Stamp Student Union—Center for Campus Life at the University of Maryland, College Park, The Stamp Gallery is dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art, especially the work of emerging and mid-career artists. The Gallery supports contemporary art that is challenging, academically engaging, and attuned to broad community and social issues. Through meaningful exhibitions and programming, the Gallery offers outside-of-the-classroom experiential learning opportunities. It functions as a laboratory where emerging artists and curators experiment and work through their ideas. The Gallery’s programming aims to emphasize the importance of process to contemporary artistic practice and to provide a forum for dialogue.
