AMALGAM – 01/22 – 03/7/2010 – The Mills Gallery, Boston MA – Curated by Evan J. Gaza
Artist David Lloyd Brown presents his Triplet Series, a collection of works specifically made for this exhibition, whose drawn circular images are inspired by genetics and bred from a vocabulary of cut paper stencils, also displayed here.
The Mills Gallery at Boston Center for the Arts is pleased to present AMALGAM and Different Kind of Monster, two exhibitions featuring artists from the BCA Studio Building, guest curated by editor, art writer and curator Evan J. Garza. This project is the first in a new annual series of guest curated exhibitions of BCA Studio artists. Featured artists include: Leika Akiyama, David Lloyd Brown, Ken Clark, Aileen Erickson, Lazaro Montano, David Reichert, Robert Rovenolt, and Sophie Truong. The BCA Artist Studio Building is a diverse collection of artists working with an equally varied multitude of influences, subject matter, and medium. Therefore the work on view in ?M?LG?M is made from several pieces, fragments, sources, and found objects to reflect the construction of a single thing from many parts. The emphasis on studio practice and its effect on resulting work is reflected in the presentation of ephemera from the studios of selected artists, installed throughout the gallery alongside original works. These items offer clues as to how—or where—these works emerged. Additionally, several exciting and unforeseen connections between artists are explored throughout the space.
