7th Annual Transmodern Festival April 15 – April 18, 2010



    untitled emergency survival tactic #8 (expertise vs. dilettantism in potability, trust, and personal purity)Marian April Glebes is an emerging conceptual and mixed-media artist whose installations are built of the remnants of elaborate processes that are futile or ridiculous, metaphoric, and temporary. Her works address issues of the urban/suburban environment, the character and power of the artist, and the use of site-specificity and the art object as a tool for social change. Glebes has exhibited in Baltimore, Washington DC, and Chicago galleries, including Heaven Gallery, Gallery Four, the Creative Alliance, Goucher College, Area 405, MICA, and the Center for Art, Design, and Visual Culture at UMBC. Having received her Bachelors of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute, College of Art in 2005 and her Masters of Fine Art from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in 2009, Glebes has made her home in Baltimore, and currently facilitates commercial real estate development in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District under Guppy Management Services. She is a curator for Artscape and the Metro Gallery in Baltimore, The Douglas Street Music Collective in New York City, and co-curator of Baltimore Design Conversations. Glebes is a member of the Charles Street Trolley Committee, the Baltimore City Forestry Board, and presently serves as Treasurer for the Baltimore D:center.

    Marian will do a day long scientific experiment/performance in which she will become artist/scientist and filter the harbour water, using a filter built of found natural materials throughout baltimore city.
