I apologize for the gap between posts. I had a great time this weekend at the Kingston Road Village Art Walk. I'd like to thank everyone who came out. It was wonderful getting to meet so many talented local artists and see their work. Now, that I have a bit of time to attend to my more administrative tasks, I can share some of the sights and experiences from my recent stint in Boston. So, without further ado, here is a selection of photos of the city and of some art exhibits that got me jazzed. Enjoy!
Day to Night by Stephen Wilkes was at the Robert Klein Gallery. Wilkes creates epic landscapes and cityscapes that show up to 30 consecutive hours from one fixed camera location, resulting in a spectrum of time across one photograph.
I was very excited to go to the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston for the first time. The work I saw there was outstanding. I highly recommend a visit if you find yourself in Boston.
The first gallery housed the exhibit of Walid Raad (b.1967, Lebanon). Raad's work investigates the ways that experience, imagery and reporting of violence effect our understanding and interpretation of historical and current events.
Geoffrey Farmer explores the history of the printed image and how it exists today in light of the shift towards digital imagery. His sculptural "standing images" were both whimsical and eerie. I easily could have spent hours examining them.
As part of my Tufts University Reunion Weekend, I got to attend Tufts Night at the POPS conducted by Keith Lockhart at Symphony Hall.
The most important part of my trip was the time spent with the best of friends. Thank you, you fierce, phenomenal, inspiring women!
