FROM THE CITY TO THE WORLD is an exhibit investigating city life; how urban spaces are used or neglected, how people's histories are preserved or plundered, how new comers are welcomed or shunned. The gallery contains art by BR1, Kevin Cyr, Diane Pontius, and Gabriel Specter, and two exhibit events feature work by numerous writers and video makers. These established and emerging artists examine city life at street level.
The gallery and online exhibition is Pontius' curatorial début. “I live in the City of Cambridge, and much of my art is about my urban environment, so I’m thrilled by the opportunity to present other artists who share my passion for city life,” said the first-time curator, whose photographs will also be on display.
CRISTINA HAJOSY AND WEN-HAO TIEN is an exhibit that combines Cristina Hajosy’s experimental book and mixed media art with Wen-hao Tien’s contemporary Chinese calligraphy.
