Make & Mend is a second-hand art supply shop in the heart of Union Square. Emily Tirella, a fibers major at MassArt in 2017, started the shop to make art supplies more accessible and curate those forgotten art supplies that either go partially used or un-used all together. When beginning, Emily asked herself, "How can I make these expensive art supplies more accessible to the next round of students to take this class?" Art supplies in general can be unreasonably expensive, especially when you get to the fine art realm of things. Make & Mend wants people to have the freedom to play with art materials and not be restricted from growing their practice because of financial constraints.

QUEER // TRANS & NONBINARY PORTRAIT MARATHON AND OPEN MIC

10:00 AM10:00

QUEER // TRANS & NONBINARY PORTRAIT MARATHON AND OPEN MIC

A PORTRAIT MARATHON FOR QUEER // TRANS & NONBINARY FOLX WITH ALLY SCHMALING AND SPACEUS

The goal of this project are three-pronged 1) To make powerful and authentic self-representation and the aesthetics of studio portraiture accessible for all folks, regardless of financial ability or the constructs of homogenous beauty standards. 2) To raise money to nourish LGBTQ+ organizations that directly affect our local communities in Boston. 3) To build out a piece of representative art that documents the breadth and diversity of the Boston queer/trans/nb community. By holding up a mirror to show people their own power, by putting that privilege in the hands our most vibrant and vulnerable humans, you can literally build and change communities.

Located at coworking artist space Spaceus in Harvard Sq, the portrait marathon will run from 10am-5pm, with 20 minute time slots available for donation based booking. These slots are welcome to be shared with friends and chosen family! The event will culminate in an open mic from 7-9pm, open to any and all queer/trans/nb folks interested in sharing or performing! Donations will be evenly split, with proceeds from this event going to local youth led queer organization BAGLY and a community pot to be spit amongst the perfomers of the open mic.

MOON EATERS VOL. 3 "TRANSITIONS": CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE!

MOON EATERS VOL. 3 "TRANSITIONS": CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE!

MOON EATERS is a zine at the intersection of Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) and femme identities.

“It’s a place for us to talk to each other about representation and cross-diaspora experiences. We want to talk about things we love, like music, snacks, TV celebrities, trending styles. We also want to talk about things like immigrant journeys, our bodies, estranged families, displacement.”

The first issue of “Moon Eaters,” released in June, features a diverse yet cohesive set of pieces created by APIA and femme artists. Some pieces are heavy—a poem about racial fetishization, or a second-person narrative about going through life with a name that is chronically mispronounced. Some are a bit lighter—an interview with a friend, or an APIA Diaspora Bingo board with spaces like “‘No, I don’t speak Chinese or Japanese’” and “Bowl haircut until the age of 8.”

!! The call for submissions for MOON EATERS VOL. 3: TRANSITIONS ends November 30. To submit written and visual art, email us @ mooneatercollective@gmail.com.

ROCO @ SPACEUS

PHILTH HAUS is introducing a new entity to its collective. 

ROCO is a very special entity.

Cosmically interlacing through electromagnetic and aural frequencies, 

they gestate in glares and gazes. 

And in this. 

you sacrifice to them all your breath.

now:

open all access. dilate all openings. 

for they have hacked you. 

a theory of a young girl 

with no override. 


__

PHILTH HAUS is an art collective hosted in three cities: LA, NYC, and Boston. Composed of the five entities, each focusses on the end of a discontinuity and how this unfolds into new connection, a death to bloom. Most recently, PH has been exhibited in REC CENTER LA and MiMoDa Studio LA and is in collaboration with Hayden Dunham for an upcoming show in NYC in November. Come see ROCO at Spaceus!

SURFACE CONSUMPTION EXHIBITION AT GALLERY 263

Join us at Gallery 263 for the reception of our most recent Exhibition Proposal Series exhibition, Surface Consumption by artist Lisa Kellner. Kellner’s work explores the conditions of space while considering the superficial layer and what lies beyond it. The paintings on display in this exhibition present the surface for what it is, a dubious facade wrought with hidden layers. The included sculptural work removes the painted “canvas” from the stretcher bars and places it in three-dimensional space. The surface layer becomes a painting in space exploring the nature and fragility of facades. Pushing the limits of materials, each work reveals its infrastructure, conceding how it was made and for what purpose. Attention is paid to how space is inhabited and what occurs when place is infused with history and meaning.

On View: October 18 – November 10, 2018.
