Events
  • Artist Anna Craycroft, of the current exhibition Tuning the Room in Ben Maltz Gallery, in discussion with artist and curator Micah Silver.

  • Emily Thorpe's art work addresses the twisting formation of memory through spatial relations and moments of domesticity. She will be presenting a solo exhibition for her Graduate Thesis at The Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art & Design, on view February 20 to February 25, 2017. There will be a closing reception on Saturday, February 25, 6-9pm.

  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

  • "In publishers’ terms, Shock and Awe – a hefty, intellectual book about glam rock – is timely." - Jude Rogers, The Guardian

Impossible Measures
Anna Craycroft in conversation with artist and curator Micah Silver. In conjunction with the current exhibition Anna Craycroft: Tuning the Room


Art can be thought of productively as about learning ... and in this frame the material of art is not sound, not paint, not objects, but the schematic play we perform (with body, attention, our entirety) in order to absorb the work.

                                                - quote from Silver’s book Figures in Air

This event will address the fearlessness of open-ended listening.  In a time of "alternative facts" where measures of reality have gone askew, our own subjectivity is urgently needed to build a world rooted in trust and possibility. Micah Silver and Anna Craycroft will make social and acoustic experiments that explore the ineffable qualities of sound and audio. Visitors will be invited to join in these activities and discussions. Together we will reflect on how we move through the air, tuning our attention and imaginations to acoustic energies of the space and one another. We will think about how little we, amateurs and professionals alike, can adequately describe and quantify these observations. Liberated by the inexactness of measure and the evidential truth of witness, we will play with the different meanings we can extract from them.


Snacks and beverages will be provided by Eden Batki that draw awareness to taste and digestion, mirroring the exhibition's attention to the sensory perception of acoustics and optics.
