Villa Victoria, 405 Shawmut Ave, Boston
Todo Bajo Control.
"...curators Ian Deleón and Anabel Vázquez produce(d) a site specific installation featuring the work of Providence-based artist Sophia Sobers and Boston-based sound producers TOOMS (Philip Fryer and Ryan Stanis).
Drawing inspiration from Sobers’ graduate portfolio via the Rhode Island School of Design, the artist will recreate her piece Enclosure, a floor-to-ceiling, interactive landscape using fabric, light, and found organic materials. This environment will be the central stage for a live performance by TOOMS, who’s ambient sets have provided a parallel to recent visual projects such as Carousel and indie music festivals like Raw Meet.
Enclosure (curated by Vellum's Alexis Avedisian) explores the connection between the symbolic cultivation of plants and the space it exists in, suggesting a narrative of a person who is tied to the caring of these plants in the system he has created for himself. Similarly, TOOMS mixes original and found audio footage—often from natural sources like water and wind—creating droning, beatless landscapes mixed live via cassette tapes. The installation will stir up several contemporary questions: can we truly control the wild, or must we allow some things to remain untouched by technology?" [Source: Vellum]

2013 Lecture Series: Tarek Elhaik: The Incurable-Image
"Tarek Elhaik’s talk sheds doubt about the proliferation of medial acts deployed under the banner of the "Social." It is in fact still unclear how social media and art practices have emerged as the dominant creative horizons for resisting neo-liberal forms of mediation. Building on his ethnography of curatorial laboratories in Mexico City, Elhaik proposes the concept of the "Incurable-Image" as a point of departure for thinking and working through the malaise of contemporary curatorial and moving-image culture, offering another use of Deleuze’s Notes on Societies of Control."
