Last Week to See ‘Full Count’ by Ben Evans at Gallery NAGA

Ben Evans, Fine Arts 2011, presents his second major exhibition ‘Full Count’ at Gallery NAGA. Ben’s immersive installation charts the career of fictional baseball player Benny Cobb. Through this character notions of masculinity and the complexities of love are explored.

Navigating relationships is also a theme found in Benjamin Evans’ work. A recent graduate of New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University, Evans incorporates found materials, film, and photography to mediate the concepts of love, sex, and virility. For his installation at NAGA, Evans explores the idea of how the game of baseball can be used to reflect on the concept of virility and relationships in a sexualized world. Evans constructs a baseball-themed environment installation to tell the story of the fictional rising star for the New Berry Roosters, Benny Cobb. Full Press Release

‘Full Count’ is on view at Gallery NAGA, 67 Newbury St, through February 1st.

Photography Exhibit & Conference at Suffolk’s Adam’s Gallery

591The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History, a photography exhibit that challenges viewers to think about what they see when they reflect on images from an earlier time, continues at the Adams Gallery through February 25.

The exhibit includes daguerreotypes, tintypes, ambrotypes and other forms of early photography as well as prints from tintypes made by an Air National Guardsman deployed to Afghanistan. Ed Drew’s modern-day tintypes are believed to be the first battle-zone photographs using this method since the American Civil War.

Philosophy Professor Gregory Fried, who curated the exhibit, has long been engaged in the Mirror of Race project, which encourages people to “reexamine how they see others and themselves” as they explore an online exhibition of historical American photographs. Originals of many of these images are included in the exhibit.

The Suffolk community is invited to attend a A Mirror of Race conference on Friday, January 31, in the first-floor function room, Sargent Hall. The conference will include speakers on the history of race and photography and on how narrative forms our identity.

The event is free and open to the public. Registration is required if you plan to attend the luncheon.
