Galley 1: "The Pleasures of Modern Living" - photocollage by Nadine Boughton
Using vintage magazines and materials, Boughton scans and compose digital collages, piecing together fragments of memory into new narratives. ”My intention is to blend the nostalgia for the past with the darkness beneath ‘the pleasures of modern living.’ I am interested in the portrayal of women and domestic culture; the illusion of security; food as an object of desire and comfort; and the grip of materiality.”
Gallery 2: Constructions: Gehry's Stata Center (MIT) and the Barn Series
Emily Corbató and Carol Krauss’s elegant black and white photographs of buildings in steel and wood, modern and traditional are unified by skeletal structures, form and light. Side-by-side, Frank Gehry’s MIT Stata Center for the “intelligence sciences” and the anonymously built barn in New England can be viewed with a fresh perspective.
