Our Own Sanctity

“The greatest art symbolizes not those things that we have observed so much as those things that we have experienced, and when the imaginary saint or lover or hero moves us most deeply, it is the moment when he awakens within us for an instant our own heroism, our own sanctity, our own desire.”

— W. B. Yeats (via litverve) ♥

Art New England: November/December

This fall, I had the pleasure of reviewing Mel Bochner at Barbara Krakow and writing a spotlight feature (swanky name for a longer review) of SMFA’s out of bounds exhibition at the Rockport Art Association.

out of bounds showcased the work of 18 faculty and alumni from the SMFA and it was wonderful to see contemporary work by regional creatives exhibited for the first time in such a historical space. Hooray for progress!

If you simply can’t wait for the latest issue of Art New England to arrive in your hot little hands, my ~700 word debriefing is available online here.

Enjoy! ♥

Other Order : A Sound Walk Through Bussey Brook Meadow

When: App available for download October 1st through long after we’re dead.

Where: Arnold Arboretum | 125 Arborway | Boston | MA | 02130

Opening Reception: Saturday October 18th, 1-3PM (South Street entrance)

Download the App: Google Play | App Store

What/Why: “Created by media artist Teri Rueb and illuminated by the voice of the Arnold Arboretum’s retired Senior Research Scientist, Peter Del Tredici, the sound walk is a GPS-enhanced application that senses the participant’s movement and location and in response, plays back sounds and stories at specific points in the landscape. It’s an innovative approach to interpreting the complex natural and cultural history of this fascinating urban wild. Visitors are encouraged to download the app at home in advance of their visit and wear headphones for optimal listening.”

PS: Don’t forget to bring your fully charged mobile device and headphones!

———–

If you are unfamiliar with Teri‘s work, you might want to get acquainted.

In 2007 when I was still fairly new to the city, I spent some time with her Core Sample interactive sound walk on Spectacle Island. Wow. It has since influenced my thinking as a curator; identifying unique ways to create engaging and immersive experiences.

I can’t wait to try Other Order out for myself. Next sunny autumnal day, I will certainly be at the arboretum with bells/headphones on. ♥
