Aviary Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition of new works by ten Massachusetts-based artists, on view April 3 to April 29, 2014. Artists Zachary Allen, Elaine Bezold, Sean Foulkes, Tony Luong, Christopher Ridgway, Joseph Saphire, Cris Schayer, Jonathan Stockton, Joyce Taihei, and Robert Warren have worked collectively to create an exhibition that that explores issues surrounding Boston’s uncertain future.
Please join us Thursday, April 3, from 6 to 9 p.m., for the exhibition opening, a short performance, and to meet the artists. This opening is also part of Jamaica Plain’s First Thursday art walk.
Harbinger is a reaction to a recent report released by the Boston Harbor Association predicting sea levels could rise as much as 7½ feet in the next century, threatening vast stretches of the city. Through photographs, sculptures, performances and installation, the artists aim to create a document of the present, and suggest ways of preparing and dealing with the future ahead. The work is both playful and deadly serious, and hopes to get viewers asking questions about their place in the new, more volatile world. The exhibition is also the beginning of an archive and invitation for others to participate in documenting the city and chronicling the efforts to confront this inevitable change.
