Lucky Strike Exhibition | Feb 22
Lucky Strike is an exhibition at Howard Art Project featuring the Master of Fine Arts thesis project of Joe Joe Orangias. The project was initiated by his research at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University on how architecture and design choreograph the body, and influence social experience. Focusing on the candlepin bowling alley as a distinct case of such structural influence, Orangias has salvaged the only remaining materials from the former Lucky Strike Lanes in Dorchester, MA with the generosity of the property owner. These materials have been repurposed into a series of paintings, sculptures, and a collaboratively written Lucky Strike Manifesto. In exploring the formal and environmental issues of this cultural infrastructure, he has created narratives and habitats that complicate understandings of art, intimacy, the body, and public space. The works preserve a strong history, but simultaneously propose new futures.
