Join us for an opening reception of the new exhibition "Outside/ In: Graffiti & Street Art Through the Photographer’s Lens"
On view: September 3 - September 30, 2021
Curated by Renana Greenberg Kehoe
Exhibiting artists include:
Mary Newell DePalma
This exhibition features local artists’ photographs of graffiti and street art, many in Boston and the surrounding area as well as some from other locations. By viewing works of art that are traditionally outdoors now inside the gallery, we consider their relationship and place in the larger conversation about public art, street art, and public space. Additionally, viewing these artistic works through the lens of a different artist (the photographer) adds another element to the conversation. The photographs contemplate the impact of this art in its original setting and encourage viewers to consider the dialogue between the various graffiti artists’ intentions and the photographers’ views. What happens when we bring the outside in?
