The MEMOIRE INVOLONTAIRE project is a personal exploration of representation and memory in 8mm family film created in 1940 and interpreted in the digital age.

Cindy Konits –

 Through the gaze of a man operating an 8mm film camera long before my birth, I view both familiar and unknown adults interacting with each other and children in ways concerning but familiar. Slow motion playback of 1-hour-B&W and 1-hour-color film reveals detail such as large blue stripes in a wide ruffle sundress that bring to mind the blue couch next to a breezy open window where I sat, age 4, watching a black and white television with a man by my side – the filmmaker himself. Marcel Proust named this recognition of the past in the present moment Memoire Involontaire (In Search of Lost Time 1871-1922). (more…)

Eric Levin’s “Vehicular” Curated by Kristin J. DeAngelis at Silverman and the Majestic Theatre Condominium Association

Thursday, September 5th, 2019

SILVERMAN and The Majestic Theatre Condominium Association presents Eric Levin’s “Vehicular”. This is curated by Kristin J. DeAngelis Director of 107 Bowers Gallery & Art Space.  The exhibit closes October 26th.

“Eric’s photos intrigued me because I felt I was peering into his world during his moment of solitude. And often catching unexpected humor,” says curator Kristin J. DeAngelis. “These are the moments I am highlighting in his exhibition.”

Eric Levin started taking pictures in college, partly because he was writing for the college paper, the BU News, which had a recent history of publishing dynamic photojournalism. He became fascinated with the medium and its modern masters—Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander and others. Levin graduated college in 1971, just as the art world was being forced, by artists like William Eggleston, to take color photography seriously. He had always loved color, in everything. The psychological qualities of color—ebullient, lewd, somber—grabbed him as a young photographer and never let go. The ordinary world, everyday objects, things that others would consider inanimate, don’t seem inanimate to him. “I never set out to shoot vehicles per se, or any other subject,” Levin says. “I am always on the lookout for the unexpected in the ordinary. If I have a fixation with vehicles, it is, I suppose, with the idea that they represent purpose, mobility and a certain kind of strength and durability, which nonetheless is as vulnerable as anything else in the world.”

Voices of Parkland – Portraits by Jeff Vespa at Susan Eley Fine Art

Friday, May 31st, 2019

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present Voices of Parkland – Portraits by Jeff Vespa. The exhibition runs June 5 – 20 2019. The opening reception is June 5th.

On February 14, 2018 fourteen students and three faculty members were murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. This was the deadliest school shooting in United States history. Immediately after the shooting Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Aalayah Eastmond and other students spoke out against the shooting and began campaigning to end gun violence. Inspired by these students, Jeff Vespa traveled to Florida to photograph and interview the students, their teachers and the parents of the victims. Vespa captured over 50 portraits and video testimonials, which were featured in People MagazineBuzzFeed News and The Hollywood Reporter. SEFA will be exhibiting Vespa’s portraits along with video testimonials of firsthand accounts from the tragic day. In an effort to help stop gun violence we must keep telling these stories in as many ways as possible.
