Spotlight + Event: Disrupting the Daily Routine Exhibition + Performance, Feb 7

Performance at 7 pm February 7th with Thalia Berard and Willoughby Lucas Hastings.
Situated in the lobby of Commerce Place, in Malden Center, Disrupting the Daily Routine is an exhibition presenting conceptual works in sculpture, new media, installation, and performance to the patients and practitioners that interact with this site daily. The artists in this show challenge themselves and viewers to begin the 2020 year by evaluating the ways in which we react to the failures of our habitual actions and worldviews. Anja DuBois grapples with the unknowability of living things to recognize any perspective or consciousness other than their own. Paulina MacNeil visualizes feelings of comfort and uncanniness from the inaccuracies in digital recreations of the physical world. Krystle Brown contends with the entanglements of familial memory within the myth of American meritocracy. Willoughby Lucas Hastings and Thalia Berard embody and subvert the tropes of performative patriotism to interrogate the ways aesthetics maintain ideological control. In the season of New Year’s Resolution and at the start of an election year, this exhibition proposes behavioral change and personal investment to confront the obstacles impeding the future health of our society.
