Cullen Washington Jr.: The Land Before Words
"In his first solo exhibition in Boston, Cullen Washington Jr. presents large-scale paintings that employ strategies of collage and assemblage, incorporating found objects, discarded materials, and scraps from the studio floor. Washington’s unprimed and unstretched canvases, which he attaches directly to the wall and in some cases the floor, structure the formal language of abstraction through references to grids, patterns and internal rhythms."

The Lightning Speed of the Present
"This group exhibition explores the ephemeral transformation of experience into histories, memories and narratives. The exhibition considers the transient nature of experience—individual and collective—and the multiple ways our various experiences are recorded, translated, interpreted, described, transcribed, fragmented and ultimately visualized through form and material. Featured artists include Ben Berlow, Dineo Seshee Bopape, Georgina Lewis, Danica Phelps, Jacolby Satterwhite, Sandrine Schaefer, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Rachel Perry Welty, and August Ventimiglia.
"Accumulation is a series of performance events will take place every Wednesday at 7 pm during the exhibition. All evidence from the artists’ actions are left behind, challenging the following artists to incorporate these remnants into their own work. Any materials that come into the space remain until the exhibition closes." Created and curated by Sandrine Schaefer."

Book Project:
"An auxiliary project of the exhibition, nine custom-printed books are produced for the exhibition’s nine artists. Composed of Wikipedia articles selected by the artists, these volumes shed light on the ideas and artifacts that they accumulate in their individual practices. Organized by Evan Smith."
