Protected: 2022 Spring Exhibitions | Education

CHRIS DOYLE | THE FABRICATORS Chris Doyle’s exhibition will premier an installation of his 2021 digital animation, The Fabricators, featuring a 48-foot-long video projection on an artist designed screen in CMCA’s Bruce Brown Gallery. The Fabricators features a group of related machines locked in loops of perpetual labor. Products, by-products, and waste are transported through conduits that weave through the space of the animation. Because the figures and gestures of the system appear anthropomorphic, one can’t help but look at…

Veronica Perez | voices, whispering

May 28 - September 11

Veronica Perez’s solo exhibition will feature a new body of sculptures made from braided and weaved artificial hair, a material that Perez has been deeply invested in for the past three years. The artist's intricately detailed works act as monuments to feelings of love, loss, and grief and are symbols for exploring the forgotten and stolen histories of the Latinx diaspora. Perez’s practice is both introspective and community-oriented. Much of this work is built in and by, communities in Maine…

Reggie Burrows Hodges | Hawkeye

May 28 - September 11

CMCA is pleased to present Hawkeye, a solo exhibition of paintings by Reggie Burrows Hodges. A tennis ball, warped by the speed of impact, is captured right before it lands on the painted boundary of the court. Its oblong shape is conveyed through negative space—a window into the black ground with which Hodges treats his canvases. This is movement as observed by a Hawk-Eye, as it lives in the paintings of Reggie Burrows Hodges: an opening, through which a series…

Yashua Klos | Our Living

May 28 - September 11

Our Living is the first text-based work from the Brooklyn-based artist Yashua Klos.  This monumental work expands upon his unique approach to large scale woodblock printing and collage by referencing the technique’s history as illuminated manuscript before the advent of the printing press. In Our Living, a working collective of hands hold letter forms that are being overgrown with sprawling vines and wildflowers. The work seems to be a public announcement of Black resilience and prosperity being nurtured through communal action. In this…
