maps glover: save the seed

Save the Seed was inspired by the thought of a seed as a metaphor for the black soul. The importance of saving this seed is vital to the preservation of our future generations. How we value this seed determines how we will nurture it. Where we plant this seed will affect the outcome of the seed. As you move through the space, you are invited to consider seeds you might find important, and think of ways to elevate them to full growth.

Maps Glover’s work is spiritual driven. The concepts are inspired by human behavior and observation while using pervasive social issues as a point of entry. He visualizes how time affects behavior as he puts his body through endurance performances. Glover constructs portals that invite the audience to access the subconscious through real-time interactions. Maps has created and performed works at The Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, Smithsonian Arts & Industries Building, University of the District of Columbia (UDC), Transformer, and the National Portrait Gallery.


The exhibit runs Wednesdays + Weekends through November 3rd, 2019
