Pat Falco's Boston Contemporary Art Museum for Contemporary Art, Artists, and their Contemporaries participating in Boston's First Night to ring in 2015

Follow Pat Falco's UNTITLED NOVEMBER, a series of daily interventions in the BCA's South End neighborhood and beyond, November 1-30, 2014.

Pat Falco, who founded Lincoln Art Projects in Waltham and runs the Distillery Gallery in South Boston, creates deadpan, hilarious yet pointed text-based signs and objects that he deploys in the public realm to provoke conversation about challenging contemporary issues. During his residency at the BCA, he continues his exploration of the intersection of art and activism with significant participation from the BCA community.

Boston native Pat Falco is a graduate of Massachusetts College of Art & Design. In 2011, he founded Lincoln Arts Project, an alternative gallery/project space in Waltham, MA, and he has run the Distillery Gallery in South Boston since 2012. His art practice revolves around everyday life, using text and found objects to highlight the absurd and interacting with his surroundings using a humorous approach.

For the past two years, Falco has primarily focused on installing text-based signs and objects around the city. Their purpose ranges from acting as a catalyst for conversation about city-related issues to bringing attention to under-recognized topics.
