Scroll: I Don't Care I Love It
2014, THE CONTEMPORARY, BALTIMORE, MD | Role: Co-Editor
The Contemporary's Scroll, is an annual publication, published by The Contemporary, and produced entirely by our intern staff. Each issue of Scroll will explore a different cultural topic related to the mission and efforts of the museum and will be available, for free, in print and online. As a member of the first intern class, I collaboratively initiated Scroll in collaboration with Max Anderson and Lee Heinemann.
Who decides what is ‘contemporary’? The inaugural issue of Scroll, titled I Don’t Care I Love It, produced by Max Anderson, Kimi Hanauer, and Lee Heinemann, investigates tastemaking and highlights significant local cultures that exist independent of socially-constructed hierarchies. The Contemporary’s departure from a permanent, physical space theoretically expands the museum’s presence to the entirety of Baltimore. Scroll: I Don’t Care I Love It responds to this potential by creating a space which is inclusive of people, places, and things that are seldom represented in traditional institutions and histories.
