Humans are communal and private individuals, simultaneously. We share food, conversation, identities, while holding private moments, lives, and thoughts. The Alleys & Intersections group residency and exhibition seeks to explore this dichotomy in practice and as a focus of artistic creative expression. Alleys & Intersections was conceived by Michael Owen and Max Ferency, two Baltimore-based artists and friends who explore these relational themes in their individual artistic practices.

On October 19th, 2017, selected artists will gather at HOME Artist Residency to live and produce work culminating in a public group show on October 22. Living and working quarters will be divided based on the needs of each artist. Provided nightly dinners and exhibition space will be shared.

Artists are responsible for any travel expenses to and from HOME as well as the materials and equipment needed to create work. HOME will provide space to stay and create during the residency, promotions for the group exhibition, connections to local vendors and nightly dinner.
