This fall, the University of Maryland’s Stamp Gallery
presents Paradise Now, a project by Baltimore-based artist Kimi Hanauer featuring work by Sydney Spann, Michael Stephens, and Nikki Lee. Paradise Now is a game of unequal circumstances and varying objectives. From August 29 through October 15, Paradise Now invites visitors to develop their potential as players by participating in gaming rounds that, over time, will collectively alter and reinvent the game’s score thus changing the rules of the space itself. Visitors are invited to experience the game’s opening round on Thursday, September 1, 7–8 pm, doors at 6 pm, featuring live performances by Sunatirene, Michael Stephens, and Nikki Lee.
