    The artists in this exhibition – many of whom work collaboratively – articulate various aspects of Folklife as a cultural precedent. Folklife encompasses all facets of self-organized creativity, including boatbuilding, collective mending, parading, storytelling, foodways and interactions with the built and natural environment. The millennium-old rituals of street spectacle are re-imagined, an abandoned library-turned-art incubator fosters a multi-part installation, historic watercraft built from salvaged materials are rendered seaworthy, and folks who fix things do just that in About, With & For. Exceeding the specific concepts of the art world discourse, this exhibition revels in the expanded possibilities of cultural influence in contemporary life.

    About, With & For features works by artists from New York and New England including Matt Bua, Dirt Palace, Clare Dolan/Museum of Everyday Life, Fixers Collective, HONK! The Festival of Activist Street Bands, Mare Liberum, National Bitter Melon Council and Jeff Stark.
