Excited to announce Acres has been selected as a recipient of The Contemporary’s 2016 Grit Fund!
The grant we received will help us expand on the printed format by further investigating the subjects of our publication through the medium of video. With the help of new Acres collaborator Marian Blair we will produce a series of web published mini-docs that aim to celebrate and spread awareness of the artists, projects, and spaces that make up Baltimore’s current cultural landscape.
Huge thanks to The Contemporary and all involved in this grant program and congratulations to the other amazing grantees- check out their projects here.
ACRES IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF FEMINA, A COLLECTION OF ESSAYS, THEORIES, MUSINGS, AND ART SURROUNDING THE PHYSICALLY AND SOCIALLY CONSTRUCTED IDEA OF THE WOMAN. IN PUBLISHING THESE WORKS WE HOPE TO CELEBRATE AND GIVE VOICE TO THE EXPERIENCE OF THE FEMALE-IDENTIFIED, FROM ANY PERSPECTIVE, AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE ONGOING DIALOGUE OF CONTEMPORARY FEMINIST EXPRESSION.
