PHOENIX SHOT TOWER
corner of Fayette and Front (near President st, end of I-83)
Current Space, in conjunction with Carroll Museums, is proud to present Hope Against Hope at the Phoenix Shot Tower, curated by Michael Benevento and Andrew Shenker
From the theft of fire [by Prometheus], to contamination through water [Leviticus]; echoing the home of invention and the cornerstone laying by Charles Carroll of Carrollton; a commercial enterprise dissolves the myth of bullets and opens onto hope as poison at the bottom of Pandora's box.
Scattering the fragments of history to the sound of falling water, this once tallest building in the US becomes a site of modest explorations and play.
Featuring site specific performances, video, drawing, installation, and more.
