- BRINK V1
Event on 2014-03-11 12:00:00
The Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) presents BRINK v1, on view in the Mills Gallery from February 13-April 13, 2014.
BRINK v1, curated by Lexi Lee Sullivan, brings together four artists collaborative to explore ideas of itinerancy in contemporary photographic practices. These photographs build on the rich artistic lineages of travel, documentary and street photography, and show the influence of inspired peripatetics from Walt Whitman to the Beat poets, in prints that seem similarly unrooted. It is the first in a series of exhibitions dedicated to the emerging art in the Northeast and organized around a theme or subject determined by the invited curator.
BRINK v1 features the work of Cole Caswell, Nelson Chan, Georgie Friedman, Houseboat Press and Scott Patrick Wiener.

To celebrate the launch of the new Artists Board Book series, published by Graham grantee Soberscove Press, the Graham Foundation Bookshop will be hosting a special event for children inside Judy Ledgerwoods immersive installation, Chromatic Patterns for the Graham Foundation. This innovative series consists of 5 individually-authored books that playfully combine the conventions of the artists book with those of childrens board books.

Co-sponsored by Poetry magazine, the launch event will also include an artist-lead activity by Jessie Mott, author of Animals Dreaming.
Soberscove's Artists' Board Books are sold individually, as well as in a Limited Edition Boxed Set. Titles include:

Food Face by Carrie Solomon

In succeeding decades it has presentedoften for the rst timeworks by virtually every significant poet of the twentieth century.
