Ragnar Kjartansson, The Visitors at the ICA.
Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, 100 Northern Avenue, Boston, MA
Ragnar Kjartansson: The Visitors A celebration of creativity, community, and friendship, The Visitors (2012) documents a 64-minute durational performance Kjartansson staged with some of his closest friends at the romantically dilapidated Rokeby Farm in upstate New York. Each of the nine channels shows a musician or group of musicians, including some of Iceland’s most renowned as well as members of the family that owns Rokeby Farm, performing in a separate space in the storied house and grounds; each wears headphones to hear the others.As the music begins and repeats, individual players stop, start, and move between rooms. Viewed together, the individual videos present an ensemble performance Kjartansson calls a "feminine nihilistic gospel song." The piece itself sets lyrics from a poem by artist Ásdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir, Ragnar´s ex-wife, to a musical arrangement by the artist and Icelandic musician Davíð Þór Jónsson; the title comes from a 1981 album from Swedish pop band ABBA, meant to be its last.

Boston Center for the Arts Plaza, 539 Tremont Street, Boston, MA
Bounce, by Liz NofzigerExperience ping pong with a twist on the BCA's Plaza this summer with Liz Nofziger's Bounce... no skill required!BCA Artist Resident Liz Nofziger brings free community ping pong to the BCA's Plaza this summer with Bounce, a colorful, interactive outdoor installation made up of three conjoined, regulation-sized ping pong tables, custom-engineered to form an oversized Community Ping Pong Court. This unique configuration encourages participants -- from the proficient to the amateur -- to try their skills, make new friends and make up their own rules. All are encouraged to stop and play - paddles and balls will be available at no charge around the clock. Each bounce of the ball will be captured by microphone and amplified, processed and played back in real time, adding another element of recreation to the work.

Bounce opens to the public on July 24th and remains active on the Plaza through October 14th.

Dell Hamilton, Cusp at the Howard Art Project.
Howard Art Project, 1486 Dorchester Ave, Dorchester MA
Perma-F(r)ail: Personae DocumentsPerma-F(r)ail: Personae Documents is an original group exhibition curated by Jessica Borusky.
Borusky writes: "Persona within art can be understood as a lens by which to view or understand art making; meaning, what is the physical body behind the work produced and shown, and how is that generating particular affect(s) for the viewer? Or, it can be seen as an artistic endeavor in and of itself; meaning, how does one observe and understand performativity of self, the flux and presentation of identity-making, within real-time, and then extrapolate that experience for viewers outside of the originally designated site of construction?"Perma-F(r)ail: Personae Documents brings together work by artists from around the country who use video, writing, performance, photography, and changing installation strategies to explore personae in new, provocative, and ultimately, ephemeral ways

Opening Reception:
Friday July 25
6 pm - 9 pm
