    Dario Robleto's 'Setlists For a Setting Sun' is like a religious shrine for scientists
    There’s a good chance we’re not alone in the universe. We, the citizens of Earth, have yet to knowingly communicate with extraterrestrial lifeforms, unless our cats or David Bowie are keeping something from us, as we suspect they might be. But...

  • Art Fart: Nick Cave's 'Soundsuit' at the BMA

    Art Fart: Nick Cave's 'Soundsuit' at the BMA
    We’d really like to know how Nick Cave decorates his Christmas tree. His 2013 'Soundsuit' in the Contemporary wing at the Baltimore Museum of Art is packed with as much domestic personality, tradition, and kitsch as your grandma’s tree,...

  • Finding a sense of isolation and anxiety in Alberto Giacometti's 'Man Pointing' at the BMA

    Finding a sense of isolation and anxiety in Alberto Giacometti's 'Man Pointing' at the BMA

  • Field Tripping: A critical look at the BMA's American wing

    I’ve lived within spitting distance of the Baltimore Museum of Art since moving to the city, but somehow, in spite of the part where it’s free, has bathrooms, and is a very short bike ride away, I’ve never spent much time there. I don&...

  • Art Fart: The political power of Philip Guston's 'The Oracle,' on view at the Baltimore Museum of Art

    Art Fart: The political power of Philip Guston's 'The Oracle,' on view at the Baltimore Museum of Art
    If Philip Guston were alive today, he would shame us for attempting to escape the tragedy in Ferguson to bother ourselves with irrelevant art. So for this week's Art Fart, we bring you a painting for our times: 'The Oracle' by Guston himself, at the...
  • Baltimore's narcotic history dates back to the 19th-century shipping-driven boom, quietly aided by bringing Turkish opium to China

    Baltimore's narcotic history dates back to the 19th-century shipping-driven boom, quietly aided by bringing Turkish opium to China
    With its longstanding reputation as a high-volume heroin town, Baltimore’s modern black-market economy is openly opiated, driving sizeable budgets for maintaining the criminal-justice apparatus to combat it. Far less appreciated, and only opaquely...
