A Father's Lullaby

A Father’s Lullaby
Rashin Fahandej, Summer 2018 Public Art Resident
BCA Plaza
July 28–October 26
Opening Reception | July 28, 6–9 pm

Rashin Fahandej’s multi-platform sound installation on the BCA Public Plaza considers the absence of fathers in communities of color as a direct result of mass incarceration, its life-impact on children who are left behind and its weight on women and lower-income families.

Explored through the space of love and intimacy, Fahandej’s ongoing project is being developed with community members as creative collaborators. It was initially launched in 2016–2017, when the artist served as Artist in Residence with the City of Boston, and has also been developed in connection with her role as Research Fellow at MIT Open Documentary Lab since 2016.

A Father’s Lullaby is being realized in partnership with many organizations including Community Music Center of Boston, the Federal Probation Office and the newly formed Office of Returning Citizens in Boston, an agency supporting individuals who return to Boston after being released from state, federal and county facilities, as well as others who were previously incarcerated.
