Volumetric Robotics: An Exhibition Created by the MIT School of Architecture and Planning
March 17, 2014 – May 26, 2014
While some hold on to notions of alien intervention, Brandon Clifford, Belluschi Lecturer at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and curator of the exhibition Volumetric Robotics, argues that ancient civilizations like the Inca were much more advanced in their knowledge of volumetric construction than we are today. It is a rare occasion when we construct with massive blocks of stone these days.
The show includes a “cabinet of curiosities” containing artifacts and tools, footage of a robotic arm carving volumetrically, and prototypes of walls and columns fabricated by the same robot. Also included is new research from the MIT School of Architecture and Planning that explores ways to recapture methods of carving stone in the digital era.
Rights of Way: Mobility and the City
December 5, 2013 –May 26, 2014
Artists: James Graham and Meredith Miller of MILLIGRAM-office
Rights of Way: Mobility and the City is a global exploration of mobility and transportation in cities. The exhibition will feature dozens of examples of visionary urban thinking, showing how the city is shaped by the ways people move through it.
Curated by James Graham and Meredith Miller of MILLIGRAM-office, Rights of Way will demonstrate that our urban environment is the result of constant negotiation among designers, policy makers, the private sector, and individual residents. By claiming that access to mobility is access to opportunity and that everyone has his or her own “right of way,” this future-oriented show will reveal how those public rights are always at play in the shared commons of the city. ______________________________________________________________________________

Big Dig Nostalgia
April 2, 2014 — April 29, 2014
“It has been ten years since the Big Dig departed from Fort Point, and some of us look back with nostalgia to the time when Fort Point was still ‘owned’ by the artists and we were stimulated every day by the muscular art of civil engineering as it took place around us.” Says Don Eyles, artist and curator of this show.
The 249 A Street Artists cooperative was literally “touched” by the Big Dig. The building was the closest residential abutting building to go through the Central Artery Tunnel Project, with the tunnel foundation just 10 feet from its foundation. Construction took place on all four sides, over a period of many years.
The show features photography, painting, drawing and installation.
