Kickstarter of the Week is a new regular series highlighting the technology, creative and innovation Kickstarter campaigns in Baltimore that might be worth your support. See others here.

Let’s bring two international emerging artists to Baltimore city for two months.

That’s what Hyejung Jang, a candidate for a MFA in curatorial practice at Maryland Institue College of Art, wants to do: bring two international artists to the city, have each of them live with their own host families in Baltimore from Jan. 23 through Mar. 23, and then have each exhibit the artwork they create while living here for two months at School 33 Art Center in Federal Hill.

Donate to EXCHANGE on Kickstarter.

The two artists have already been chosen. Kityi Wong is from Hong Kong, and Elisa Garcia de La Huerta hails from Chile. Money raised through the Kickstarter campaign will be used for workshops with the artists, open studio tours, the exhibition itself and the printing of a catalogue of the artists’ work.
