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

Opening Reception Jan. 23, 4-6 pm

Performing the Grid is an exhibition that brings together an intergenerational group of artists and cultural producers that utilize the grid as a performative strategy to examine, challenge and position philosophical, political, social, domestic, corporeal, and mythical perspectives. Rosalind Kraus famously wrote that the grid “functions to declare the modernity of modern art” in her 1979 essay, Grids. The grid has played a historical role in conceptual and minimalist art practices and continues to motivate and engage artists today. As we delve deeper into technology, a culture of images, violence, and surveillance, how do we locate presence inside of the grid? How is the self presented within the grid? Is intimacy visible inside the grid? The included works in Performing the Grid access, address, reject and evoke the grid using video, performance, documentation, sound, sculpture, painting and installation. At times the grid is a means of tracing movement, a tool for documenting the passage of time and arranging visual texts and compositions. In other works, the grid is conjured as a blatant motif, a utopian design, and theatrical prop. From Debra McCall’s geometric re-performances of Oskar Schlemmer’s Bauhaus dances, to Bruce Nauman’s meditative studio walks and Channa Horwitz’s sound motion compositions to Heather Rowe’s film-inspired sculptures, the grid takes on new meaning and new movement.

Artists: Neil Beloufa, Lucinda Childs with Sol LeWitt and Philip Glass, Charles Gaines, David Haxton, Channa Horwitz, Xylor Jane, Rudolf Laban, Dashiell Manley, Debra McCall, Rebecca Morris, Bruce Nauman, Kelly Nipper, Heather Rowe, Emily Roysdon, Kathleen Ryan, and Emmett Williams.
