Upsodown and In Praise of Folly Opening Reception
Curated by AJ Liberto (Somerville, MA and Amherst, MA) and Kate True (Boston, MA), Upsodown brings together the work of ten visual artists from the South, West, and East Coasts to explore the transformative power of carnival— Seth Alverson, Nick Cave, Robert Colescott, Marcus Kenney, Eli Kessler, AJ Liberto, Clifford Owens, Joyce Pensato, Tara Sellios and Summer Wheat.
Upsodown is one of three selected proposals submitted through an open call to the New Art Center as part of the Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP) for the 2012-2013 exhibition cycle. The COP enables first-time or established curators to explore experimental approaches in the presentation of contemporary art.
In the Holzwasser Gallery, "In Praise of Folly" will feature the work of Carol Blackwell and Gail Hansen.
