"Structure and Perspective" brings together commissioned works by Maryland-born artist David Brewster with objects from the Maryland Historical Society’s collection. This marrying of old with new, contemporary with “antique,” creates a dialogue that inspires thought-provoking discussions of how the objects of the past remain relevant to today’s ever-changing social landscape. It also highlights Brewster’s often challenging perspective on the modern world, one that looks to the overlooked or unseen.

This exhibition features approximately 30 photographs by artists born in Vietnam, China, Japan, and Korea between 1929 and 1980. Each work explores a time of day, a reflection on legend or history, a past remembered and missed, or a future imagined and anticipated. The images also explore suspended time, periods of waiting or boredom. Some of these works are real-time images, others were created as a result of the time an artist spent immersed in the world of the image—the time required to manipulate the subject or to capture the image.
It has been more than 50 years since John Waters (American, b. 1946) filmed his first short, Hag in a Black Leather Jacket. The set was the roof of his parents’ Baltimore home, and the action, shot on stock stolen by a friend, involved an interracial marriage. Over the following decades, Waters’ reputation as an uncompromising cultural force has grown not only in the cinematic field, but also through his visual artwork, writing, and performances.
