“THE WOVEN ARC”: ETHELBERT COOPER GALLERY’S FIRST SUMMER SHOW

“THE WOVEN ARC”: ETHELBERT COOPER GALLERY’S FIRST SUMMER SHOW PLAYS WITH THE COMMON ELELMENTS OF TEXT, TEXILES, SCULPTURES, AND MORE

Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art presents THE WOVEN ARC, curated by Gallery Director Vera Ingrid Grant, with a special installation of legacy textiles and hats by David Adjaye.

The exhibition is inspired by recent acquisitions to the galley’s permanent collection and examines the points of relationship between them, revealed in the aesthetics of surface, text and texture. The installation features an array of sculptures, paintings, conceptual art pieces, print works and legacy textiles that Grant describes as “creating a visual dialogue within the exhibit space.” Four works from the Cooper Gallery’s growing permanent collection are part of THE WOVEN ARC, which runs from May 20 through July 16, 2016.

A Curated Exhibition By Kerri McGill & Ivor Scott
Opening Thursday, 6-8pm, May 5th 2016
767 Centre St, Jamaica Plain, MA

"When we focus on an object, a path, a goal, we lose our peripheral vision.
It’s a necessary blindness that provides assistance in concentration.

It is the responsibility of the artist, to pay heed, see deeply, and respond thoughtfully with skill. The artist picks through layers of reality and identity with an awareness of how one informs the other. The artwork offers the impetus for deeper understanding of the world we inhabit.

This exhibit displays art that creates a dynamic visual dialogue and a space that fosters expansive thought. It encourages the viewer to re-inform active sight, to see deeply."
Gallery hours after opening are Sat & Sun 12-6pm

Memory Matrix at MIT

Cambridge, MA (May 2, 2016) – In conjunction with the centennial celebration of MIT’s move from Boston to Cambridge – running from Apr 23 to May 7 - the MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology (ACT) is hosting five guided tours of the Memory Matrix project led by the artist and MIT Assistant Professor Azra Aksamija and invites the public to participate. Created through collaborative and transdisciplinary efforts, this public space installation explores how art and cultural heritage can play a role in promoting greater sensitivity to loss in other countries. At this very moment, our history is being rewritten through the destruction and looting of cultural heritage in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and other regions that are currently suffering acute conflict and crisis. Culture has become a central target of war and conflict because cultural heritage is often powerful evidence of our (co)existence. With this monument-in-the-making, Aksamija and her collaborators are exploring how communities t…
