Howard Art Project

Howard Art Projects Presents: National Geographic | May 23 to June 6

The Howard Art Projects (1486 Dorchester Ave) presents: National Geographic! This is a group exhibition featuring the work of Abbey Campbell, Nathaniel Grossman and Spencer Hinson.  Here, artists and art objects serve as spokespersons for nonhuman entities, at once creating and bringing into focus discrepancies between our external reality and its varied representations. While rooted in the factual, the works place emphasis on their own aestheticization, understanding it as not extraneous but necessary for their involvement within social or political frameworks. This exhibit starts on May 23rd and stays until June 6th. The opening reception will take place on May 23 from 6pm to 9pm. If you plan to visit, please make an appointment by contacting >> Read More

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. >> Read More

Howard Art Project exhibition: Slowness | Jan 27

As part of the ongoing Howard Art Project exhibition: Slowness, interdisciplinary artist Joanna Tam will discuss her work with Slowness curator: Christopher Thomas Ford. Tam will be discussing her project “107,594”. The title “107,594” refers to the estimated number of Iraqi civilians killed during the course of the US led invasion of Iraq. During the course of one year, Tam documented the basic biographical data of each victim on 3 x 5 index cards. The work is a meditation on time and the sheer breadth and banality of violence.
