Chromatic Visions: Group Exhibition
Featuring artwork by Rashida Abuwala, Clint Baclawski, Cicely Carew, and Daniela Rivera. Curated by teen curators Ana Hernández and Michael Sun with curatorial advisor Jen Mergel through the 2022 Praise Shadows Mentorship Program.
The capacity to perceive color is a scientific phenomenon known as chromatic vision. But it is also something more poetic and subjective–with no two people seeing exactly alike. Through artists’ works employing color across their distinct embodied and cultural experiences, and across diverse materials and methods, this exhibition invites exploration of as many chromatic visions as there are expressive points of view, including yours. Chromatic Visions seeks to prompt open-ended questions about how color can stimulate both immediate reaction and deeper thinking.
About the Praise Shadows Mentorship Program
This is the second year of the Praise Shadows Mentorship Program. Established upon the gallery’s founding in 2021 as an essential part of the mission, the Program hosts Boston-area high school students for a unique professional development opportunity. Upon application review, up to two students are selected for paid work in the gallery through the spring and summer season, with the opportunity to curate a culminating group exhibition with a selected curatorial advisor.
