In 2018, the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) deaccessioned seven artworks from its contemporary holdings to create an acquisition fund for purchases of works by artists underrepresented in its collection and within broader art historical narratives.
Twenty-two of the 125 works acquired through the fund in the past three years are on view in Now Is The Time. Coupled with several extraordinary gifts the museum has received, the exhibition offers an insightful snapshot of the BMA’s curatorial effort to identify artists deserving of greater scholarly research and public attention, placing the highest priority on those artists who are women, Black, Indigenous, self-trained, and/or have connections to Baltimore. Now Is The Time includes established figures alongside emerging voices, creating dialogues across generations. The exhibition also captures an expansive range of approaches to making, developed through both self-taught and academic training.
