The Boston Center for the Arts presents Things about Rainbows, a process-based, evolving exhibition and performance art series that revolves around the work of artist Jeff Huckleberry. Huckleberry, who has been making performance art for over twenty years, employs a wide variety of materials, including paint, lumber, power tools, rubbing alcohol, ground coffee, dirt and ambient soundscapes. His performances explore a variety of dichotomies—playful/painful, serious/humorous, awkward/elegant—and consciously embody the politics of labor and art production. The exhibition title is inspired by both the artist’s complex exploration of how we perceive the goal of aesthetic experience, which Huckleberry colloquially refers to as “the thing,” and a body of work he developed based on the nature of rainbows.
