Mark your calendar for an opening reception for “Another Room in the House,” a new photo-essay by Leo March (@mneyid). This exhibition, which was commissioned by the Barr Foundation, “compels us to consider who feels welcome and who does not” on Boston’s waterfront. Join us for a program with remarks from Barr Foundation President Jim Canales and an artist talk from Leo March.
This summer, artist Leo March went exploring throughout the Boston Harbor. Along its contour, from Dorchester to East Boston, he discovered the Harbor has a rhythm. It varied in every section, influenced by the local infrastructure, the type of light, the amount of shade, the breeze, the temperature, and the visitors. In some areas this rhythm triggered a welcoming feeling. As he explored, Leo attempted to photograph these places, focusing on who uses the waterfront, why, and in what manner—which prompted him to reflect what potential remains to fulfill.
