The Event of the Line
Natalie Kennedy, Erin Morlock, Jim Ricks, Matthew Gamber, The Aishmans, Benjamin King, Ben Sloat, Darren Blackstone Foote, Candice Ivy, CFYH, N. Sean Glover. Curated by Ben Sloat
"The Event of the Line explores the line as a dynamic form, one that reaches across cultural platforms, materials, and gestures. In a sense, the line can be considered as a mechanism to cross boundaries and to shift relationships within extant structures of art production. The artists chosen for this show, some from the Boston area, others working nationally or internationally, each propose unique mechanisms for the function of the line, perhaps pointing to the ultimate capacity of the line itself: as a cultural event." — Ben Sloat
Opening Reception: Thursday February 27

Brian & Stephanie's Pick:
Friday February 28 - Friday March 21

the Howard Art Project, 1486 Dorchester Ave, Dorchester MA

Recto and Verso
"Eight emergent artists working across disciplines. United under Dave Hickey's seminal essay Frivolity & Unction, the show entitled "Recto and Verso," features the varied yet equally exploratory works of Charlie Crowell, Garrett Gould, Duy Hoang, Gordon Holden, Grace Jackson, Tyler Murphy, Alicia Riccio, and Sena Wataya. The exhibition playfully explores unexpected modes of indulgent story telling, the humanity of space, commercial aesthetics, and the deceptive nature of the everyday. Collectively the work calls for an innocently subversive a reorientation of perspective and a reconsideration of an assumed truths." [Source]
