Your Margins, Your Rivers, Your Diminutive Villages
January 22—March 7, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 23, 5.00–7.00 p.m.
Artist Talk: Thursday, February 20, 6.00 p.m.
The work seen in this show will be paintings and a multimedia site-specific work comprised of drawing, video, and sculptural components. Using automatic building and drawing techniques, Loper will create a piece in the gallery using the surrounding natural environment of the area as a departure point, from water pathways moving through terrain and deep woods to manicured landscapes and land used for agriculture. Because the work is generated intuitively, using surrealist automatism as a guiding principle, the work often takes unexpected forms, exploring the intersecting terrains of landscape, utopian architecture, and bodily organism.
Destilled Lives, Spaces Gallery
For this SPACES Vault installment, Kristin Rogers has curated a selection of video works under the title "DeStilled Lives." The videos feature an assortment of quiet (still) "lives" that awaken into contemplative, cautious even, movement. Awakened, yet not immediately sure of their surroundings, these so-called DeStilled Lives move through their environments-through their narration-with a sense of quiet determination and lived awareness.

Loper, Michelle Samour, Jennifer Schmidt
collaboration between the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (SMFA) and
Aichi University, Nagoya, Japan, "Forms in Flux" is an exhibition of
three artists from each respective institution whose work addresses concepts of
transformation, and whose collective practices become newly recontextualized
among their fellow exhibitors. "Forms in Flux" provides a meeting
place for something new to be created from two geographically distant locations,
and the transformative nature of each artist's work is heightened in the
physical and artistic context of their foreign counterparts. Just as the
collaboration itself has fluctuated from its inception, so does the work of
these accomplished faculty members, whose work breaches communication,
intuition and alteration.
