Boston Based Band "Gentlemen Hall" Released A New Music Video With Art By Iansanity and Ethan Goldhammer!

Gentlemen Hall's "Sail into the Sun" music video was premiered on MTV's Buzzworthy blog this week.  Brilliant local artists, Iansanity and Ethan Goldhammer, were involved with the colorful mesmerizing artwork.  I have already watched this video numerous times because it is so happy that it makes me happy. In fact, I am still smiling.  I hope these guys collaborate again in the future. I also hope to see the triangle people again in the future. Great work! :)

Entertainment industry professionals Ange and Rob Alex moved to Hull in September 2012 and launched a youth Arts program when others said it couldn’t be done. Ange Alex brings 20+ years of acting, improv, modeling, on camera and more. Rob Alex brings 30+ years in music, recording and design.

Jessica Borusky - The Posture Grid!

OPENING RECEPTION
FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 6 - 8 PM  
The Posture Grid!


This project is an exploration of personal/performed/projected identity through the construction of persona. Using the premise of selling a grid product, The Posture Grid! is a durational performance for video that unpacks advertising language in order to engage how products meant and designed to "help" the body, often reflect ways in which the body has been repeatedly regimented, silenced, and forced into "straight lines" that often do not coincide with lived experience. Through humor, endurance, and duration, The Posture Grid! begins to break down the initial sales-veneer: exposing a figure that cannot return to the sales pitch, and revealing the ways in which no-one can succeed within the grid's rigid lines. "The Posture Grid: If You Stand Straight, You're Accomplished!"
Jessica Borusky is a Floridian feminist who currently resides and works in Boston, Ma. Through humorous, persona-bas…
