About, With & For
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 millennium-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.
About, With & For is Curated by Juliana Driever & features works by artists from New York and New England including Matt Bua, Dirt Palace, Clare Dolan/Museum of Everyday Life, Fixers Collective, HONK! The Festival of Activist Street Bands, Mare Liberum, National Bitter Melon Council and Jeff Stark.
Opening Reception: Friday October 4, 7pm. Featuring a live musical performance by Second Line Social Aid and Pleasure Society
Free and Open to the Public | Gallery hours: Wed, Sun 12-5pm | Thu-Sat 12-9pm

Thursday October 3 — Sunday January 5

Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, 100 Northern Avenue, Boston
Amy Sillman: one lump or two
The first museum survey of works by New York—based artist Amy Sillman traces the development of her practice from the early use of cartoon figures and a vivacious color palette, to her exploration of abstract expressionism and growing concern with the bodily and erotic dimensions of paint.

Malden Public Library, 36 Salem Street, Malden, MA
Quiet, Please presents: Fresh Approaches to Public Art: The Smallest Museum in the World and Guerilla Benches in the Park 
"Quiet, Please" is a regular series of talks at the Malden Public Library about arts, cultures and other interesting things.
This month’s talk is hosted by malden resident Greg Cook and includes artists Judith G. Klausner, founding curator of the Mµseum—"the Smallest Museum in the World"—which opened in Somerville in August; Matthew Hincman, who snuck a curious double-backed park bench into Jamaica Pond in 2006; and Naomi Brave of Malden Arts, which organizes the annual Window Arts Malden. The talk will be followed by a tour of the library’s Converse Memorial Building art galleries with art curator Marysara Naczi.
7pm / Free
