Title: Workin' the Tease
Keywords:

Museums and Society student, Erin (Gloria) You, recently participated in a two-semester project through MICA's Exhibition Development Seminar (EDS) class, which resulted in an exhibition titled, Workin' the Tease: The Art of Baltimore's Burlesque.

The purpose of the show was to celebrate the renewal of Burlesque in Baltimore through the surge of Neo-Burlesque performers who have arrived to Baltimore and transformed it into one of the central hubs of Neo-Burlesque.

The project consisted of both an opening night of performances called "Best of Baltimore", in which 15 Baltimore-based Burlesque performers performed acts on the Lyric Opera House stage, and an exhibition that featured the historical Burlesque artifacts, artifacts donated by the performers, a series of photographs from Sean Scheidt's Burlesque series, and Globe Letterpress posters made specifically for the exhibition. The opening night was a one-time ticketed event that happened on April 22, 2014 from 7-10pm. The exhibition was held at the Modell Lyric Opera House on Monday, May 5 and Wednesday, May 7th.
