Coco Fusco: A Performance Approach to Primate Politics
"New York-based interdisciplinary artist and writer Coco Fusco will consider the critical responses to the original Planet of the Apes films, focusing in particular on the interpretation of the films as critiques of American race relations during the 1960′s and ’70′s. She will also discuss her interest in exploring the strategies used in early sci-fi cinema, the ways that films such as Planet of the Apes employed speculative fiction to generate social critique."

"Sophie Calle: Last Seen will include Calle’s 1991 Gardner-inspired work on display for the first time at the Gardner, as well as new work created in 2012.
The 14 photographic and text based works in Last Seen consist of two distinct series. The first, created in 1991, titled Last Seen… is a series of photographs and texts created shortly after the 1990 theft during which 13 objects were stolen from the Museum. The second series, titled What Do You See? includes new work which Calle made in 2012 at the Museum while revisiting the earlier project." [Source: gardnermuseum.org]

MassArt, Tower Auditorium, 621 Huntington Ave, Boston
Matthew Brandt
"Los Angeles-based conceptual artist Matthew Brandt blurs the line between the photograph and photographed: his subject matter both visually and physically informs the work. Whether developing photographs of lakes and reservoirs with water from the sites or printing portraits of family and friends with their own sweat and tears, Brandt's deep understanding of obscure historical processes and his experimental approach allow him to create uniquely interconnected works that are revelatory and captivating."
