Consumerism

The lowdown -- Material Matters, a politically oriented group exhibit at Maryland Art Place, tackles consumerism. The exhibit's film, sculpture and other media explore the idea that consumerism manipulates people's wants and needs, pacifying them. Curator Jason Hughes will speak at 6 p.m. tomorrow, followed by a public reception at 7 p.m.

If you go -- Material Matters runs through Sept. 9. at Maryland Art Place, 8 Market Place in Power Plant Live. Call 410-962-8565 or go to mdartplace.org.
