Kianga K. Ford and the Contemporary Museum
New Work Project Grant
For her exhibition at the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore, Kianga Ford created a new audio walking tour called Charm City Remix. Charm City Remix is part of a series of site-specific narratives created by Ford that offer portable audio soundtracks to guide listeners on a walk through a city, neighborhood, or location. The Story of this Place: Charm City Remix is a fictional narrative that was informed by the stories shared with Ford by people in Baltimore during her residency at the Contemporary Museum. Ford’s Baltimore narrative features a new musical score by Baltimore-based Erik Spangler and Brian Sacawa and is influenced by the area’s rich history, architecture, geography, social climate, and diverse demographics.
