Spread over six Baltimore-area insitutions, Bearing Witness: Work by Bradley McCallum and Jacqueline Tarry opened to the public this past weekend. Together the husband and wife team push audiences to contemplate the ills facing urban society – homelessness, gun violence, civil rights. Their medium is mixed, mingling large scale installation, video, and photography. The effect is appropriately jarring. Blurry, disjointed images carrying heavy emotional weight.
Bearing Witness serves, essentially, as a ten year retrospective. Rarely are the work of McCallum and Tarry shown with such full scope. The breadth of the exhibition is covered well via the web. Individual images, a catalog and running blog can all be found here.
A brief sampling after the jump. Head to the above mentioned website for more.
