Best New Series: Pulse: Performance Art Salon

EMP Collective, 307 W. Baltimore St.,

EMP Collective artistic director Carly J. Bales filled a local hole when she debuted this performance series in May 2014. Pulse not only offers a regular monthly opportunity to see new and emerging performance works, but also provides a workshop space for artists to try out new ideas. Yes, the performances themselves can be hit or miss, but Baltimore is home to a wide variety of artists who make time-based work that doesn't always fit into the city's conventional gallery, theater, or even experimental venues, and Pulse has become a nexus for a variety of work exploring various hybrid forms, ideas, and subject matter.
