Curated by Robert Moeller

Free, Public Opening Reception: Friday, April 17, 6-9pm

Yeah, You Missed It!

And perhaps, that’s the point. You missed it. This exhibition continues to explore the very temporary placement of art in both traditional and nontraditional venues. The show, part of an ongoing series, features a rotating group of both artists and curators, organized by Robert Moeller, who work together to program very brief pop-up exhibitions. These can range from informal backyard events to the embedding of new work into an existing art collection in someone’s home for an evening. This exhibition at the Mills Gallery, lasting only two days, has in its title the most likely response to questions about its brief existence: Yeah, you missed it!

Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) is an active site for both art making and art exhibition, a fact that is showcased each year when the BCA’s Mills Gallery presents work by artists with studios in its Artist Studios Building. This year, work by 27 artists – working in media including painting, performance, installation, printmaking, photography and drawing – is on view in a show that highlights the individual voices as well as points of community and interplay among this varied group.

The exhibition explores and celebrates the many places that art comes from. It draws its title from an essay by poet Richard Hugo (1923-1982), who recognized a deep interconnectedness between art’s reflection on the internal region of the individual and the external region of the natural world. This resonates with the BCA’s commitment to sharing the intimate spirit of art with our community.

labor in a single shot horizontal

Mills Gallery at Boston Center for the Arts

The camera behind film history’s first movie was pointed at a factory. Workers Leaving the Lumière Factory, shot in 1895 by Auguste and Louis Lumière, shows men and women as they leave the gate of the Lumière factory in Lyon, France. Typical of early nineteenth century films, this film was made in one continuous shot, a technique that emphasizes the idea that every detail of the moving world is worth considering and capturing. For their project Labor in a Single Shot, Antje Ehmann and Harun Farocki returned to the methods of the Lumière brothers, inviting filmmakers and art and film students worldwide to express the subject of “work” with a single camera shot.

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.
