Flash of An Instant - Artists Question Photography's Ability To Accurately Document Our Experience Of The World

(Newtonville, MA) Flash of An Instant brings together work by nine artists to question photography's ability to accurately document our experience of the world.The landscapes we live in seem stable, despite their constant flux. Likewise, photography has long been heralded as a static truth with a monocular vision of the world. But when fractured and subverted, multiple truths and parallel visions arise that make us reassess what we think we know.

Still lifes by Robin Myers conflate the micro and the macro while Mark Dorf's images chart and graph the land. Sam A.

LGBTQIA Artist Alliance Present A Performance Event Related To The Themes Of Their Latest Exhibition, "Reclamation."

On Friday April 4th, from 6 - 8 PM, the Boston LGBTQIA Artist Alliance will be having a performance event related to the themes of their latest exhibition "Reclamation."

The event will be held at the Male Center in the South End, 571 Columbus Ave (at the intersection of Columbus Ave and Mass Ave).

"Reclamation" is BLAA’s sixth exhibition, honoring International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month. The BLAA presents works thematically pertaining to female subjectivity.

Presenting artist's works are blatant and aggressively feminist, or subtly work to elucidate and deconstruct patriarchal culture through myth and metaphor. “Reclamation” contains several unique, distinctive voices that also function as part of a larger collective conversation about f…
