Laura Bernstein (MFA '14) in Galactic Whispers opening TONIGHT!


Laura Bernstein        Daniel O’Neill          Jimi Pantalon

Reflecting upon humanity as viewed from deep space, Galactic Whispers explores transmission and transmutation through sculpture, video and sound. An interactive experience inspired by the launching of Voyager 1 and the premise of The Golden Record, a 12-inch copper plated phonograph record included in the spacecraft “containing sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth.” The Golden Record functions as a “time capsule, intended to communicate a story of our world to extraterrestrials.” This installation examines the breakdown of stories and information in our hyper mediated world. Like a palimpsest, the recorded audio/video interactions from visitors build and form new content, continually rewriting information throughout the duration of the show. We are preserving stories from the scale of small group interactions for new perspectives on social action.

Hello All
Happy New Year!
Proud to announce an exhibition with my good friend Jessica Slaven of new, colorful and visually charged abstract works on paper at Gallery 263 in Cambridge, MA.
In our work the processes of weaving, unweaving, embroidering, dyeing, and sewing—typically reserved for fabrics and fiber—have come to inhabit our drawing and painting practices. I have used inherited clothing to create quilts and embroidered pieces, and have since moved towards examining the weave structure of fabric and translating it into 2-D. Sewing was integral to Jessica’s sculptural work, and for four years she built her career as a commercial textile designer, weaving and putting textiles into production. Now, she adapts those skills and experiences for painting.

All that is left behind

January 7 - February 13
Opening reception: Thursday, January 7 from 6 - 8:30pm
Aditi Singh's densely worked, often large scale drawings are generated - over extended periods of time - through the meeting and clashing of mediums: paper, ink, graphite, and charcoal.

It is the transcendental quality of Yoga and art I am drawn to; of quietly, rhythmically, getting rid of all that is extraneous, of reaching a place of resonance, where there isn't a distinction between the inside or outside of an experience.

What interests me is the interplay between letting an image hover and allowing it to settle into a geography. The tenacity of a mark depends on the velocity of touch. There is a synergy, a tension, in watching ink and charcoal slide against each other building tone, texture, and rhythm; gathering nuances of connection or dissolution, each lending an emotional hue. 

Singh (b.1976) lives and works in Mumbai, India. Her works have been shown internationally in solo and group exhibitions, including DECK, Singapore; Chemould Prescott Road, Mumbai, India; SOMA Drawing Center, Seoul, Korea; National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, Japan; Gallery Barry Keldoulis, Sydney, Australia; and Arthur Ross Gallery, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
