Tuesday December 10

Malden Public Library, 36 Salem Street, Malden, MA
Quiet Please: Building (a) Greater Boston
Hosted by: Greg Cook
"Building (a) Greater Boston is the December installment of the "Quiet, Please," a free, monthly speaker series at the Malden Public Library. This month’s focus is local architecture, from legendary Boston architect H.H. Richardson’s designs for the Malden Public Library—which debuted in 1885 in an era of technological change much like our own, but looked backward for inspiration to the churches and fortresses of Europe of centuries earlier—to urban design and architecture from the 1960s to the present that look to the future for reinvention of communities in Greater Boston."

Nathaniel Walker is a doctoral student in architectural history studying utopian design at Brown University. He curated "Building Expectation: Past and Present Visions of the Architectural Future" at Brown’s Bell Gallery in 2011.
Chris Grimley and Mark Pasnik are principals in the Boston architecture firm over,under. They’re also curators at pinkcomma gallery, which is dedicated to design and architecture. Last summer, they published "Archive," a book surveying the work of the nineteen emerging local architects and designers who have participated in pinkcomma’s "Design Biennial Boston" since its founding in 2008.
The discussion will be followed by a tour of the library’s Converse Memorial Building art galleries with art curator Marysara Naczi at 8 p.m.
7pm / Free

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, 280 The Fenway, Boston
Lecture: Yve-Alain Bois: Sophie as Sherlock
"Sophie Calle has a forensic relationship to reality. She documents the past, but it is less the events in themselves that interest her than proof that they really happened. Surveillance, exhibitionist display, and absence have long been essential themes of her detective work, the latter concerning directly the works done in conjunction of the infamous theft at the Isabella Gardner Museum."

The Infinite Space of the Possible features work by Leika Akiyama, Jon Amburg, Aileen O. Erickson, Rebecca Rose Greene, Kathleen A. Kneeland, Lazaro Montano and Victor Ortale." [Source]

Don’t Wish It Were Easier, Wish You Were Better
Collaborative and independent work by Corey Dunlap and Bradley Tsalyuk
"Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better." This line from motivational speaker Jim Rohn establishes an atmosphere of uneasiness for our works that focus on the irresolute space between self-betterment and self-deprecation. Utilizing objects of exertion and leisure, our work exploits the capacities of optimism. — Corey Dunlap and Bradley Tsalyuk" [Source]
Opening Reception: Friday, December 13
6-9pm / Free
