CoHosts II: Jenna Wortham + KAHLON, The Agency was originally presented and recorded on April 29, 2017, at the Eubie Blake Cultural Center, and is part of The Contemporary’s Speaker Series CoHosts, which asked Baltimore, artist-run platforms: Who is the one artist or art professional that you want The Contemporary to bring to Baltimore?
The Contemporary is a nomadic, non-collecting art museum in Baltimore, Maryland whose mission expands the idea of a museum as an incubator that commissions site-specific and subject-oriented projects. The Contemporary engages diverse audiences to advance contemporary art through projects and educational programming. Their work is inspired by three guiding principles:
1. artists matter
2. collaboration is key
3. audience is everywhere
