A collection of historical and cultural significant Colombian passages. Events, myths, rituals, and people have been researched and collected to influence a body of work that comes from the absence of it being bestowed. Recreating and reliving through work allows for the reclaiming of the passages and continuing to guide as a contributor.

Thu Sep 5 (All day) to Fri Sep 27 (All day)

Location: 

Ceramics Program - Office for the Arts at Harvard, 224 Western Ave, Allston

Sculpture by Colby Charpentier, 2019Reception & Lecture: Saturday, September 7, 2019 (RSVP for Artist Lecture)

This show is built from a fascination with glazes and ceramic materials. During my residency at Harvard Ceramics, I’ve been researching and testing materials and procedures to take a fresh look at how we approach contemporary clay.

The process that I developed for this work has me hand-printing vessels and balloons the time to produce a single vase out to 40-plus hours. In that time-frame, I make thousands of decisions about where the profile is heading. Each drop is a waypoint in the design of the object. There is no inside surface vs. outside surface, there is only the object and the space it contains. It’s a really beautiful process. It’s layered with the irony of an American studio artist hand-replicating a 3-d printing process; making work representative of blue and white ware....

The Best New Work

Tue - Thu, May 8 to May 10, 12:00pm - 12:00pm

Location: 

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street

Artist David Levine’s The Best New Work is a series of performances designed to deliver canonical works of art criticism to a wider audience by performing them, as personal monologues, in the exhibition venue itself. Actors drift through the galleries, gift shop, cafe, and open spaces of the building, performing their essay as though on an endless loop. The performers’ attitude, delivery, affect, and mood reflect their location, their audience, and time of day.
