Lexie Mountain Debuts New Show in Highlandtown
Fronting bands/musical projects, performing stand-up comedy, faithfully following Snooki on the Jersey Shore–there seems to be nothing that Baltimore’s Lexie “Mountain” Macchi doesn’t do. A graduate assistant at UMBC’s Center for Art, Design, and Visual Culture (and an erstwhile City Paper contributor), she is currently working with CADVC and the Highlandtown Arts District on a new project titled Wish You Were Here, a pop-up gallery installation.
The show examines the way in which we consider space, identity, and the self, transforming relationships between objects and the body. A community opening reception will be held March 3 from 5-7 p.m. While all other gallery admission is by appointment only, the exhibit can be viewed via storefront, located at 3216 Eastern Ave., every evening starting at dusk.
