Boston Art Event October 2016 - "Night Walk" Reception

by Brookline Arts Center
(Brookline, MA)

Join us for the opening reception of Katha Seidman's site-specific installation, Night Walk at the Brookline Arts Center.

Night Walk is a romantic and mysteriously eerie three-dimensional narrative reflecting how imaginings of violence often tinge the experience of a peaceful landscape. Drawing inspiration from the work of Louise Bourgeois, Seidman cuts romantic beauty with undertones of depravity. Examining the beauty of nature; the pleasure of solitude; and the impact of horrors – real and imagined – Night Walk layers the beauty of moonlight in the woods with the fear of the unknown.

Echoing the world of fairy tales and pop-up books, Night Walk evokes questions: Can women be safe when they are alone in the world? How much do our fears dictate what we perceive? Outlining her motivation to make this work, Seidman explains, “We generate our vision of the world from stories, whether imagined or real. Depending on the emotions we bring to the experience, walking in moonlight by a pond can be beautifully romantic or darkened by terror.” This three-dimensional story contains an unsettling reality: women alone at night are vulnerable to violence.

Reception will be held Friday, October 14 from 6:00-8:00pm at the BAC.

The BAC is located at 86 Monmouth Street, Brookline, MA and is easily accessible by the MBTA's Green Line at either St. Mary's Street stop (C Line) or Fenway stop (D line). For more information about this event call 617-566-5715.
