Mills Gallery at Boston Center for the Arts
Opening Reception Friday, April 29, 6–8pm
Curated by John Chaich

Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) presents Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community, featuring 26 artists from four continents who remix fiber and textile craft traditions and materials to explore contemporary lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer identities and ideas. Loaded with gender connotations, feminist herstories and tactile experiences, the featured works utilize handicraft—including crochet, embroidery, knitting, macramé, quilting and sewing—as a platform for examining tastes, roles and relationships socialized within and around gay and lesbian culture, as well as the bodies, cultures and spaces that shape us.

Mills Gallery at Boston Center for the Arts

Curated by John Pyper

Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) presents BRINK v2: Space and Intimacy, the second exhibition in the BRINK series, dedicated to introducing trends found in the work of innovative emerging artists based in the Northeast.

BRINK v2 is focused on sculptors… or then again, not. It presents a convocation of six artists who are developing their practices in a media-rich and medium-agnostic art world. In the current art climate, the concepts “sculptor” and “emerging” have come to indicate market positions rather than states of being. Though the works being shown are sculptures, these artists are indifferent to traditional sculptural materials and designations. BRINK v2 casts its curatorial eye on how else contemporary physicality in art is coming into being, and what kind of being that might be.

Mills Gallery at Boston Center for the Arts

Curated by Steve Locke

Arcadia brings together a diverse group of artists and artistic practices that focus on the idea of the landscape as a site of human endeavor and a source of human experience. This exhibition puts forth the idea that the desire for pastoral space in the city creates a productive tension, one that raises the question of how we navigate the world and, more importantly, of what we want from the nature that is framed and preserved in our built environments.
