for more information

“A Planet for Rent is the English-language debut of Yoss, one of Cuba's most lauded writers of science fiction. Translated by David Frye, these linked stories craft a picture of a dystopian future: Aliens called xenoids have invaded planet Earth, and people are looking to flee the economically and socially bankrupt remains of human civilization. Yoss' smart and entertaining novel tackles themes like prostitution, immigration and political corruption. Ultimately, it serves as an empathetic yet impassioned metaphor for modern-day Cuba, where the struggle for power has complicated every facet of society” —NPR, Best Books of 2015. Socializing begins at 6, book discussion starts at 6:15. Request a copy through your library here: http://bark.cwmars.org/eg/opac/home. If you need assistance accessing your library account please send P&P a private message!

Art Talk/Crit Night
Ashland St. Project Space, 50 Ashland St.
ashley.strazzinski@gmail.com
7:30 PM
Free
for more information

ART TALK / CRIT NIGHT purpose is to discuss art, the practice of making, life, routine, ruts, research, or whatever you need an ear or eyes for. This event is FREE, but potluck is strongly encouraged!

The only goal of this meeting and future gatherings is for it to be a regular occurrence, which is the second Thursday of every month at 7:00 p.m.

Like the mailman (rain, snow, or shine), metaphorically speaking: no ideas, but looking to stay involved in conversation and the creative community; have ideas, but at a standstill and need advice on how to proceed; or have a project/piece that you'd simply like to share and have a conversation about. These meetings will happen, you can come or not. BUT (!) hopefully you'll come regardless of your artistic condition... You don't need to be a visual artist. You don't even need to necessarily be someone who makes "things" or "stuff". All you need is an open mind and a willingness to give and receive information. All of us—we are our best resource. That being said, this is meant to be casual and shouldn't be a lot of pressure or a major commitment. Unless of course, you want to use the meetings as a system to establish (and hold yourself to) deadlines. It is a hope that these gatherings will remain simple and only exhausting in the most positive sense and the structure of the meetings are expected to evolve and be adaptable to the needs of the people who attend.

GLITCHE Opening Reception
INSTALLATION SPACE, 49 Eagle Street
info@49eaglestreet.com
4-8 PM
Free
for more information

Opening reception and special performance by DJ and performing artist, Seraah, Friday, June 15, 4-8pm

 

”Glitche" is an immersive installation inspired by the idea of a glitch, error, or unexpected malfunction in a system. It may be a positive new discovery or a disastrous ending. This interaction is delicate, mysterious, and exciting, and is the force that drives the linear journey of "Glitche”. Using volumetric sculpture, video projection, and sound, Samo invites the viewer to submerge their senses into this experience.

“Glitche” has been installed on two previous occasions, each providing a unique site specific human interaction. The first iteration of the piece at the Massachusetts College of Art & Design was experienced as a private viewing, giving each individual the opportunity to deeply connect with the piece and themselves. The second iteration was implemented on a much larger scale for Illuminus: Nuit Blanche Boston allowing thousands of festival visitors to experience the piece en mass over the course of one evening. The INSTALLATION SPACE presentation of “Glitche" provides an opportunity to experience the artwork in a uniquely quirky and intimate setting.

Originally from Great Barrington, Massachusetts, Samo is a Boston based, new media digital artist and designer. Technology serves as the tool he uses to question the boundaries of digital communication and the function of the pixel. His work creates connections between technology, the physical body, and human perception by immersing the viewer in experiences that obscure the line between nirvana and dystopia.

“Fully charged and ready to break new ground, this is the kind of post-hiatus comeback most bands’ fans only dream of.” — Rolling Stone on Grizzly Bear’s 2017 release

“Grounded in an inescapable melancholy; grand and focused, elegantly layered, delicate and dramatic.” — NPR

One of the most celebrated indie rock acts of the last two decades, Grizzly Bear’s prog-rock-meets-chamber-pop sound took the music world by storm and helped to define a new wave of psychedelic-leaning sound. After a notable hiatus, the quartet is back touring for its first new album in five years, Painted Ruins. The band’s most synth-heavy and beat-driven album to date, Painted Ruins landed on most “best of” lists in 2017, including Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and USA Today. Pitchfork notes Grizzly Bear’s “intricate compositions…are bound tighter than ever, evoking distant images and emotions that continually shift in and out of focus.”

The Clark invites you to spend quality time in our galleries during an afternoon of close-looking and Father’s Day art-making. Spark conversation during a special Father's Day gallery talk at 2pm, and make a special nineteenth-century style Medal of Honor inspired by the museum’s newest addition, Portrait of Achille Deban de Laborde. While you’re here, pick up a picnic meal from Café 7 and enjoy lunch while you relax by the reflecting pools or explore our hiking trails.
