Procheta Mukherjee Olson: While You Were Away

This installation is a collaborative project between an Indian artist living in the U.S.and her American friend living in India. They recorded initial experiences of the place that each had just moved to. These impressions are inscribed on objects that are peculiar to this new place, something unseen in their country of origin. They deconstructed and examined the process of assimilation. They aim to create a consciousness of similarity and difference while also showing how personal narratives act as gateways into the larger collective.

Imagimenagerie

Myths have the power to both reflect and effect the psychology of their contributing cultures. Through a developed creative language, mythology allows the human psyche to create the world anew, showcasing the human propensity towards imagination. It is through this creative process that a single species utilizes its imagination to attempt to understand its environment, regardless of cultural or external contexts. Artist, Kenny Harris, explores this rich territory in his whimsical, graphic, figurative forms.

Short film: "Now That We Find Ourselves Here"
Documentation of a Zoom event that took place on May 6th, 2020. Participating artists Hannah Duggan, Avery Forbes, Cima Khademi, Nima Nikakhlagh and Abbey Paccia are exploring the potentialities of Zoom as an exhibition space. Curated by Jenny Vogel, this virtual exhibition will test the boundaries of digital interaction through live online performances, and screen shares. Each artist has had to adapt their practices to accommodate shelter-in-place restrictions. This exhibition asked them to push their adaptations even further to see what new experiences could be created. The results are a disorienting journey through cyberspace in which performers attempt to push past the obvious limitations.

This film is featured as part of the SOS (Summer On-screen Series) at Hampden Gallery, Fine Arts Center, University of Massachusetts Amherst.

"Those Who Plant Trees," by Abbey Paccia, is a meditative essay film, ruminating on stories of regrowth and the healing properties of silence. Made in Amherst, Massachusetts amidst shelter-in-place orders and the sweeping uncertainty of the ever-changing pandemic circumstance, the film wonders about ways that we can choose to think and act in times of global crisis.

Paccia's film is featured as part of the SOS (Summer On-screen Series) at Hampden Gallery, Fine Arts Center, University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Thank you - Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies - FAPE Elizabeth Sobieski's The Masked Hatter series.

@elizabethsobieski @themaskedhatter @hampdengallery @umassfac #photography #americanart #FAPEglobal

“The Masked Hatter” is a new series of photographs by FAPE member Elizabeth Sobieski. Created in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the works feature the artist under what is now a ubiquitous façade —stripped of human features and seen only through layers of hats, sunglasses and masks. The work is on display online at UMass Amherst’s Hampden Gallery as part of the “SOS (Summer On-screen Series)” curated by Sally Curcio. Congratulations Elizabeth!
