An Evening with J.M. Giordano, Michael Anthony Farley, and DDm

Registration not required, but encouraged. Click here to register through Eventbrite.

J.M. Giordano will be in conversation with Michael Anthony Farley and DDm.

J.M. Giordano is an award-winning photojournalist based in Baltimore and co-host of the podcasts 10 Frames Per Second and Photo Flip. His work has been featured in ProPublica, The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Washington Post, The Baltimore City Paper, i-D Magazine, and Rolling-Stone, to name a few. But for the last 25 years, when he was off-duty, he walked his beloved city at night, capturing not just one particular scene, but many. From its bars, night clubs, inaugurals, casinos, strip clubs, drag nights, hip hop battles, and the too often encountered crime scenes, this incredible work paints an intimate portrait of Baltimore culture. 

Michael Anthony Farley is an artist, critic, curator, and drag performer who splits their time between Baltimore and Mexico City. They are a graduate of MICA and UMBC. IG: @juvederm_delinquent

Secretary Of Shade DDm curates aggressive raps, animated beats, and action packed personality into one unique listening experience. In July he released his solo debut ‘Beautiful Gowns’. The former battle rapper has opened for Dan Deacon, Big Freedia, Miike Snow, and Cupcakke.

ASL interpretation will be available to attendees.
