Manko: Togetherness

Paintings by Audrey Diallo
Reception Date: Thursday, September 17 2015. 6-8 PM
Exhibition running from September 4 - October 30, 2015

In the Upper Gallery

Music and history are deeply intertwined in West Africa… and visual art is a part of the process. Every moment of the day includes a tribute to the songs and dances of the ancestors. The word Manko in Wolof roughly translates to “Togetherness” or “Community”, a concept that is all pervasive in daily life. Diallo’s paintings aspire to build visual bridges for the viewer who is invited to hear the sounds, imagine the faces, and feel the connections we all share.

The Map is not the Territory

Parallel Paths: Palestinians, Native Americans, and Irish
Reception Date: Thursday, September 17 2015. 6-8 PM
Exhibition running from September 4 - November 3, 2015

In the Lower Gallery

 

This culturally-varied exhibition looks at relationships and commonalities in Palestinian, Native American, and Irish experiences of invasion, occupation, and colonization – not as novelty or polemic, but as history and current events. The diverse images and thirty-nine contemporary artists in this touring exhibition come together to shape vibrant and penetrating narratives. In doing so they confront history, investigate personal sand political dialogue, and reflect the multiple truths in Korzybski’s dictum that “the map is not the territory.”

 

This exhibition will be held in conjunction with the Boston Palestine Film Festival (October 16-25th) which, since 2007, has been introducing Palestine-related cinema, narratives, and culture to New England audiences via film, art, and music.
