Hiroshima Panels
A Call for Peace: 
Iri and Toshi Maruki’s Hiroshima Panels & Artifacts from the Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

September 11 – October 18, 2015
Stone Gallery - 855 Commonwealth Avenue

Opening Reception: September 10th, 6pm-8pm

In commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, A Call for Peace presents six of the fifteen Hiroshima Panels by Iri and Toshi Maruki and artifacts collected from the detonation sites lent by the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. The Marukis, Nobel Peace Prize nominees in 1995,
produced the paintings over thirty years and were the subject of the 1986 Academy nominated documentary Hellfire: A Journey from Hiroshima. The panels represent recollections from Hiroshima and Nagasaki, “where hell and the modern age fused in August 1945.” These impressive pieces are famous throughout Japan and have been exhibited in more than twenty nations worldwide.

Ariel Freiberg
Ariel Freiberg: Unquenchable Thirst
September 11 – October 25, 2015
Sherman Gallery
755 Commonwealth Avenue

Opening Reception:
Friday, September 11, 6-7:30pm 

Ariel Freiberg’s recent work confronts idealized representations of gendered identities. In her lush and sensuous canvases, Freiberg depicts women’s faces that appear to blend into or emerge out of abstractly painted veils. From painted shards or tears emerge fragments of facial expressions—such as a flash of a parted lip or a slice of an alluring glance—that become signifiers of constructed female beauty. Freiberg’s paintings hesitate, creating tension between that which is depicted and that what remains unseen.

Willie Cole
September 24 – December 4, 2015
808 Gallery
808 Commonwealth Avenue

Opening Reception:
Thursday, September 24th, 6-8pm

Internationally renowned artist Willie Cole creates sculptures and installations that alter everyday materials, such as irons, shoes, and bicycles, into layered artworks with multiple autobiographical, art-historical, and socio-political meanings. In AQUAHALLIC, Cole presents a series of chandeliers and a Cadillac Eldorado, created specifically for the exhibition, made from repurposed plastic water bottles. In these works, Cole both transforms and exploits the objects’ previous associations to realize new forms that speak to the paradox of the impact of plastic upon the environment and water as the ultimate life force. Additionally, the work in AQUAHALLIC responds to the history and architecture of the 808 Gallery.

Superdicas Sobre Arte
Os textos deste livro são um convite para viajarmos pelo universo das artes visuais, pistas sobre experiências e reflexões de vida interior e exterior através do contato com produções artísticas de várias épocas.
Neste livro o leitor irá encontrar um conjunto de informações sobre conceitos de arte que fazem parte da cultura do nosso tempo, mas nem sempre são de entendimento imediato.
Há perguntas que todos nós fazemos ao visitarmos uma exposição, ao depararmos com uma intervenção artística na rua ou ao lermos uma notícia sobre arte nas revistas, nos jornais, na internet...
A arte é a memória coletiva da humanidade, a memória e a imaginação aproximam as pessoas que partilham experiências artísticas no cotidiano.
A arte nas suas múltiplas vozes, seus processos de criação e fruição poética que nos proporcionam as obras de arte, seus materiais e técnicas artísticas.
Nas escolas, o estudo da arte e a prática artística contribuem para o desenvolvimento de percepções e tornam os estudantes mais atentos ao conhecimento, assim como os capacita a serem cidadãos críticos e mais humanos.
Os artistas transmitem o que pensam e sentem através das obras de arte, motivados por acontecimentos, emoções, saberes, aprendizados, experimentações e tentativas nos seus processos criativos.
Nesta obra pretendo construir diálogos e criar aproximações com a arte e os processos criativos. Trazendo para o leitor possibilidades de se iniciar em alguns aspectos da arte, e, assim, se inserir de forma mais atenta e sensível no seu contexto artístico e cultural.
