In Over My Head: October 15-November 21
Reception: October 25, 5:00pm-7:00pm
Using photography, audio, and archival material, In Over My Head forms a complex narrative that is rooted in the labor of a specific person and place, but is also inherently fictional. Even as it captures artist Thalassa Raasch’s experience of digging graves, grieving the recent deaths of her uncle and grandmother, and living with gravedigger Everard and his family, the material aspires to transform the barrens of northern Maine into an imagined River Styx. In doing so, Raasch, A.B. ’10, envisions a place where death is beautiful, comfortable, difficult, and humorous but also an accepted, quotidian fact.
WE ARE ONE: May 2018-May 2019
Since the fall semester, Harlem-based artist Paul Deo has been working with Harvard and Allston-Brighton students to create a unique mural combining his signature bright colors and Afrofuturistic style with inspiration from Allston's history and culture.
