Emerson Graduates Open The Door to Intimate Spaces

 Emerson Graduates Open The Door to Intimate Spaces

M’Kenzy Cannon’s PLEASE LET ME IN, the newest multimedia exhibition in the 1:1 Curatorial Initiative at Boston Center for the Arts opens August 6. 

 

Important Dates

Public Reception and Curatorial Walkthrough: Friday, August 12 • 6pm—9pm

On view: August 6–September 10 

 

BOSTON, MA - Fresh from Emerson College, artist M’Kenzy Cannon and curator Maya Rubio bring the intimacy of personal space to the Mills Gallery. Formed through video, photo, and object work, PLEASE LET ME IN, urges gallery-goers to excavate and co-create the exhibition’s narrative. PLEASE LET ME IN will be the fourth exhibition in the 1:1 Curatorial Initiative series presented in the Mills Gallery at Boston Center for the Arts. 

 

Installed deep in the gallery, a living bedroom will welcome visitors to explore an unknown stranger’s most intimate space and its hidden secrets. Large scale projections with warped home interiors and found object creations will push guests into “the realm of the Other.” 

 

PLEASE LET ME IN is a piece of object-spatial theatre, an environmental performance in which gallery-goers become a character in the sticky world of existential mystery constructed by Cannon and Rubio, gathering the threads between self and divine, intimate and unknowable, bedroom and black hole. 

 

Like past exhibitions in the 1:1 Curatorial Initiative series, PLEASE LET ME IN, presents a collaborative project between one curator and one artist. The Public Reception for PLEASE LET ME IN at 6pm on August 12, will be part of a full day of BCA programming. BCA will also be hosting Open Studios in the Artist Studio Building next door and a Project Room Show with BCA Studio Resident Karmimadeebora McMillan within the Mills Gallery.
