Beyond Words | An International Group Show
Fountain Street Gallery
Feb. 17, 2023 - Mar. 27, 2022
Beyond Words is an exhibition that integrates a diverse group of artists that explore the power of language. Chosen from an international open call by artist and curator Gabriel Sosa, the work exemplifies how language can encompass wide-ranging notions of touch, mark-making, and repetition. Featuring works that range from the playful to the profound, Beyond Words reminds us of how we can constantly redefine the ways in which we communicate.
Juror Gabriel Sosa is a Cuban-American artist, educator, and linguist. He draws from legal proceedings, personal archives, and contemporary visual culture to explore the mutability of language, the imperfection of memory, and the misinterpretation of both. Raised in Miami and now based in Boston, Gabriel is a lecturer at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and the Deputy Director of the Essex Art Center in Lawrence, MA.
