huckleberry horizontal

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.

Dust you are, to dust you shall return. (Genesis 3:19)

Boston Center for the Arts presents artist Jordan Eagles in his debut solo Boston exhibition, Jordan Eagles: Blood Dust. Eagles presents a group of unsettling as well as sublimely beautiful hybrid sculptures and paintings, utilizing blood from slaughtered cattle as a medium to explore profound perceptions of life, death and resurrection. Curated by art historian Francine Miller, this exhibition comprises fourteen wall pieces and free-standing sculptures from 2011 to the present, featuring fresh, aged and dried blood (“Blood Dust”). In these works, poured, sprinkled and soaked blood is meticulously encased and preserved in layers of clear UV resin on Plexiglas to create polished minimalist forms that act as reflective and self-reflective surfaces on which to meditate.

infinite space horizontal

The Artist Studios Building (ASB) at the Boston Center for the Arts houses over forty artists working in a broad range of media and subject matter. Commonly shared is the value of workspace and a creative community within which to stimulate and exchange ideas. The Infinite Space of the Possible, curated by Lynne Cooney, features seven artists with studios in the ASB. In this exhibition, through collaborative dialogue, the participating artists push the boundaries of their artmaking – either by materializing a previously unrealized project, forging current work into new territory or considering their work in an expanded context.

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.
