about with and for horizontal

The artists in this exhibition – many of whom work collaboratively – articulate various aspects of Folklife as a cultural precedent. Folklife encompasses all facets of self-organized creativity, including boatbuilding, collective mending, parading, storytelling, foodways and interactions with the built and natural environment. The millenium-old rituals of street spectacle are re-imagined, an abandoned library-turned-art incubator fosters a multi-part installation, historic watercraft built from salvaged materials are rendered seaworthy, and folks who fix things do just that in About, With & For. Exceeding the specific concepts of the art world discourse, this exhibition revels in the expanded possibilities of cultural influence in contemporary life.

23rd Drawing Show: Drawing Connections PDF Print E-mail

23rd drawing showCurated by James Hull

July 12 – September 22, 2013

Drawing Connections investigates the relationships between traditional and contemporary approaches to the act of drawing as both a singular and interdisciplinary medium, from the simple yet elegant shorthand of painters and sculptors to the elaborate brainstorming of collaborative event-based artists.

In embracing the traditional “work on paper” side of drawing, Drawing Connections explores the edgy, contemporary application of this approach and seeks the conceptual content and experimentation that this primary, flexible medium provides for today’s working artists.

Curated by Debra Olin
December 14, 2012 – February 3, 2013

The Boston Center for the Arts is pleased to present the annual BCA Artist Studios Building exhibition with Process Goes Public, curated by Debra Olin and featuring participating artists: Ruth Ginsberg-Place, Georgina Lewis, Silvia López Chávez, Marilyn Mase, Selina Narovlansky, Robert Rovenolt, Miriam Shenitzer, Beverly Sky and Sophie Truong. Process Goes Public transforms the traditional “white cube” experience of the gallery into an interactive forum for artistic vision and the action of art.

The BCA Artist Studios Building (ASB) artists’ methods, processes, thoughts, insights and perspectives are the exhibition. Throughout the show, the artists will be actively working directly in the Mills Gallery’s space and walls on individual projects or concepts. Process Goes Public explores the artistic process in real time and engages with the development of ideas. The work will remain in-progress, ephemeral and incomplete until the end.
