We Used to Live at Night
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND: There’s a certain amount of irony in showing amazing photographs of nightlife in a gallery that closes at 5 p.m.
This recurring theme with museums and galleries is going to haunt 24HourNation. Or, maybe, the other way around.
Award-winning photojournalist J.M. Giordano’s 2021 book, “We Used to Live at Night,” spans 25 years of Baltimore—including images of hip-hop battles, inaugural balls, underground sex parties, the city’s drag culture, dive bars, the dance and club scene, the casino, and crime photography.
Maryland Art Place presents selections from J.M. Giordano’s book in its show “We Used to Live at Night” on view May 12-Jun. 25, 2022.
But you might want to wake up and get there before they close because, apparently, no one enjoys art about the dark after dark.
