The Contemporary is a nomadic, non-collecting art museum in Baltimore, Maryland. Our mission expands the idea of a museum as an incubator that commissions site-specific and subject-oriented projects. We engage diverse audiences and advance contemporary art through projects and educational programming. Our work is inspired by three guiding principles: artists matter, collaboration is key, and audience is everywhere.
MAP first and foremost serves living, emerging and mid-career artists with the understanding that the organization plays a key and critical role in providing a platform for personal & professional artistic growth within the contemporary, visual, fine arts realm. This is achieved through annual programs (exhibitions/events/speaking engagements); the promotion of artwork sales outside that of a commercial gallery; the creation of income-generating opportunities for artists; and MAP’s work through the Maryland State Artist Registry and Resource Bulletin.
In May, 2017, this movement started as a city-wide call, asking Baltimore residents to avoid having any murders from Friday, August 4th through Sunday, August 6th, 2017. It was also a city-wide call, asking Baltimore residents to celebrate life during the ceasefire, by joining with others to plan life-affirming events. The August 2017 Baltimore Ceasefire/Baltimore Peace Challenge was historical for Baltimore City. There were over 50 events, countless residents received the resources they needed, and there was no murder for a total of 67 out of the 72 hours. At a time when the statistic was one murder every nineteen hours in Baltimore, the beginning of the August 2017 ceasefire saw 41 continuous hours without murder.
