2 February to 11 March
Margaret Hart, Zach Horn, Elizabeth Marran and Cat Mazza from the University of Massachussetts, Boston present an exhibition showcasing the wide variety of skills and mediums found at this prestigious institution. Despite the variety of the artistic approaches brought forward, the exhibition is inherently about people. These themes on people vary from Hart’s collages probing gender norms, Horn’s video and drawing work surrounding ideas of the neighbour, Marran’s abstract narratives and textile work by Mazza using traditional patterns as markers of social cohesion.
BOSTON will transport a small representation of Boston’s artistic breadth to Belfast. BOSTON seeks to transplant artwork to Belfast, to reposition a distinctly American notion of location into a new context. While the participating artists work in a myriad of styles and materials, their sense of place is eminently personal.
