  • 3/5India Now+

    Thursday, March 5, 2015, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.



    This January, twenty MassArt students from seven departments and four MassArt faculty and staff traveled to Bangalore in South India and then to the Andaman Islands in the far eastern regions of India's Bay of Bengal. 

    There, they studied the intersections of art, science, culture, and spirituality in ways they had never known. A cacophony of sights, colors, sounds, and smells flooded their senses in the busy blur of Bangalore, only to be countered by the remote and serene Andamans, where their spirits settled into rhythms of rainforest downpours, harrowing tidal treks, dense mangrove investigations, and dives on vibrant coral reefs. 

    In response, the artist collective created a body of works to communicate their lasting impressions of India. The works speak to individual experiences of joy, passion, connection, uncertainty, humanity, discomfort, nature, and artistic and personal growth. 

    Through this exhibition, the artists invite visitors to experience India through their eyes.

  • 3/5Ancient Roots of Modernism+

    Parker Hill Branch Library
    1497 Tremont Street, Mission Hill
    Thursday, March 5, 2015, 12 – 8 p.m.



    CACP’s Community Exhibitions Initiative (CEI) presents an exhibition of works by MassArt Professor Kofi Kayiga.

    Kayiga’s art is heavily influenced by his studies of African religions at Makerere University in Kampala.

    A graduate of the Royal College of Art in London, Kayiga fuses the abstraction of indigenious African Art with a modernist eye, inspired by his immersion in the mystic world of Rastafari and Eastern spiritual traditions.

    Art historians have conventionally posited line above color. Drawing is often seen as rational and structured whereas color is about emotion and expression. Indeed, if something "colors your judgment," you have lost your objectivity and cannot be relied upon. Yet without color our surroundings would not only be devoid of the transcendent and the ecstatic, but would also lose much of their symbolic and cultural meanings. They would be colorless. Inspired by the eponymous movement, Color Fields is a multidisciplinary exploration and vibrant celebration of color.
