  • 9/27India Now Spring 2017 Travel Course Info Session+

    Tuesday, September 27, 2016, 10:30 – 11:30 a.m.



    From the thriving cosmopolitan urban centers Thiruvananthapuram
    and Kochi, Kerala to the restricted rural preserves of the Western
    Ghats -- a tropical paradise of biodiversity with rainforests and
    mountains to tramp, this course facilitates exploration of the
    aesthetics, ecology, educational innovations, and contradictions
    of this Indian culture-in-rapid-transition. Soon to be the world’s
    most populous country (projected for 2025) and with about 25%
    of its people between ages 15 and 24, cultural transformation is
    accelerating, led by a generation of highly educated young adults
    who have returned to the country from abroad following the world
    economic collapse of 2008. India, the world’s largest democracy,
    is riding a wave of change as it struggles to meet challenges that
    include the following:

    • High rates of poverty and burgeoning business communities within the fast-paced technological connectivity of this global society
    • Inequitable access to quality education and resources
    • Sustainability in the face of climate change and pollution.
    Hosted by the Srishti Institute of Art, Design, and Technology -- one of
    the few Indian art colleges based on an indigenous model instead of the
    colonial Kensington model imported from Britain -- MassArt students in
    this course will be able to do the following:
    • Attend and meet with artists exhibiting at the Indian Biennale in Kochi.
    • Make art with Indian students and faculty. 
    • Interact and collaborate with Srishti students and visit the new Film and Video campus in Kerala’s capital city.
    • Investigate the biology and ecology of the Western Ghats -- one of the most unique ecologies in the world -- by integrating scientific observation, research, and art-making.

  • 9/27A Century of Style: Masterworks of Poster Design+

    Tuesday, September 27, 2016, 12 – 6 p.m.



    A Century of Style: Masterworks of Poster Design spans the breadth of the art poster’s development, from the emergence of the international poster scene in the 1890s; through the rapid development of the Art Nouveau, Machine Age, and Art Deco styles; and on to the resurgence of the contemporary poster. Exploring travel and leisure, food and beverage, and fashion and entertainment, the graphic works on view include those by prominent artists Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Herbert Matter, Ludwig Hohlwein, Roger Broders, and A. M. Cassandre, among many others. These colorful and vibrant lithographs span 100 years, originate from over a dozen countries, and have been selected by Robert Bachelder from his remarkable collection of vintage posters.

  • 9/27Encircling the World: Contemporary Art, Science, and the Sublime+

    Tuesday, September 27, 2016, 12 – 6 p.m.



    “I am enough of the artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
    - Albert Einstein

    This multidisciplinary exhibition features international artists whose work is rooted in scientific inquiry. Their compelling visualizations of complex datasets and natural phenomena make the unseen visible, whether sound or brain waves, magnetic fields, microscopic cells, or the entirety of the known universe. While artists and scientists both use observation, investigation, and creativity as core tools for their practice, these artists have invented novel ways to translate and materialize scientific knowledge into aesthetically captivating artworks. Playing in the realm of experience beyond the measurable – the sublime – they remind us that we can imagine far more than we can ever know.

    Curated by Darci Hanna.
