'Spilt Milk' is a one night performance exhibition taking place at the Thomas Young Gallery. The event will feature the work of four Petrichor Performance Collective members — Elaine Thap, Helina Metaferia, Kledia Spiro and Nathaniel Wyrick, all recent alumni and friends of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

'Spilt Milk' will include a compilation of diverse performative works that visually articulate themes of ephemerality and time through installation and action. Each of the five solo performances will converse with each other and the common issues of memory, identity and belonging. The event will include three hours of performances (some durational and some short form) and a half hour audience participatory pre-event discussion on the role of performance based practices in the gallery context.

Pre-event discussion will begin at 7:00 pm. 
Performances will begin at 8:00 pm and conclude at 11:00 pm. A more detailed schedule will be released closer to the exhibition date

Halfway Through the Dark: New Center NOW & the West End Museum

 

8 Night, 8 Windows: Halfway Through the Dark

Funded through an Artist grant from the New Center for Arts and Culture and CJP in partnership with the Boston Jewish Music Festival and the Boston Jewish Film Festival. 

A sculptural installation, in collaboration with artist Christian Meade, made of found and collected objects, the installation depicts a darkened domestic interior. As the days of Hanukkah progress, the scene will be illuminated by unexpected and miraculous light sources. The work celebrates the light of home and dispels the long dark of winter.
