This month we are opening a new exhibition, Our Shared Past, on view December 17, through May 25, 2014. Our Shared Past is a collaborative exhibition that came about when guest curator, Jefree Shalev, re-discovered a box of 8-mm home movies from 1957 through 1968. There are scenes from his parents’ wedding, his mother’s graduation from nursing school, his first steps and those of his brother and sister. Upon watching them, Shalev was struck by a combination of sadness and delight. Selecting 200 single frames from these movies, he then invited 32 local artists whose work he admired to create a new work of art, inspired by these moments, that would become a “shared past.” The exhibition will consist of these newly created works of art. Join us for a special preview of the exhibition on Tuesday, December 17 from 5 to 9 p.m., admission is free.
