BIG RED SHINDIG: Art on the Walls

0

......................................................................................

As we rapidly approach next week's Big Red Shindig (for which tickets are still available), we wanted to share with you examples from some of the great artists we'll be working with this year who vary in range from mid-career, established to MFA and BFA candidates at various collegiate institutions. We can't wait to see what they have in store for us at the Shindig.

Suara Welitoff
Working primarily in video and photographic installations to explore the aesthetic limits of motion pictures and still photography, Suara has been the recipient of many well-deserved awards including last year's Rappaport Prize. Her work will be featured in the upcoming 2013 deCordova Biennial in Lincoln, MA.

JR Uretsky
JR is an interdisciplinary artist whose work has been shown both nationally and internationally and who we were lucky to have as last December's artist-in-residence on our blog. Her work will be featured, along with Suara Welitoff's, in the upcoming 2013 deCordova Biennial in Lincoln, MA.

Hoda Kashiha
Originally from Iran, Hoda is a painter currently studying in Boston University's MFA program. In her paintings and drawings, she considers hidden or masked identities, and recently exhibited at Etemad Gallery in Tehran.

Anthony Palocci Jr.
A Beverly native, Anthony has returned to the Boston area after recently receiving his MFA from Pratt. His work, which will also be shown in this year's deCordova Biennial, is a strikingly painted collection of everyday objects--raising the mundane to iconic.

Jesse Kaminsky
Jesse is an MFA candidate at RISD whose more recent works have included inflatable sculptures, one of which was installed most recently at the Newport Congregational Church. Often geometric, his sculptures use the softness and hardness of different materials to create formal tensions.

Susan Metrican
BR&S's first ever artist-in-residence, Susan makes work that plays heavily with the flattening of spatial optics and uses imagery that takes cues from ancient art, frescos, and collage. Last month she became the most recent graduate of the sübSamsøn residency at Samsøn Projects and next month she, along with Sean Downey, Carlos Jiménez Cahua, and Lucy Kim, will open the new artist-run space kijidome.

Nabeela Vega
Coming to Boston via the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Nabeela's created character of Thahab examines the role of a muslim woman and her presence as an object as well as the significance of assimilation in modern America.

Jeff Keough
Henry David, 2011
For 25 years Jeffrey Keough was Director of Exhibitions at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. In 2005 he suffered a debilitating stroke and, after partially recovering, returned to his job before departing to pursue his own art--currently an investigation into both dark humor and morbid impulses.
