Bumpkin Forward Exhibition April 1-10 – An Exhibition of the Bumpkin Island Art Encampment’s 2010 Projects & Artist

The 2010 Bumpkin Island Art Encampment artists, curators and project fellows invite you to visit our public presentation of last year’s projects at Mobius! The Bumpkin book documenting all 4 years of the Art Encampment will be available to look at and purchase. The new RFP for the 2011 Art Encampment will be available at the exhibition a well.

A performance by Sara June and Max Lord, and a talk by Cara Brostrom will take place at the opening reception on Saturday April 2, 6:00-9:00. Grounded by artifacts, works, and documentation from the 2010 Bumpkin Island Art Encampment, this exhibition is a forum for artists to synthesize their Bumpkin experience with their current practices. Artists present recontextualized work from Bumpkin, images and video of their experience, as well as new work that builds upon their work from Bumpkin.

For more information on artists and the event: http://www.mobius.org/. The Bumpkin Island Art Encampment is a five-day public art experience in the Boston Harbor Islands national park area. During their residency, artists establish a home camp/village, create and install and/or perform work that responds to the island environment, and engage with the general public during and after their art making process.

The project is produced through a unique partnership of the Berwick Research Institute, Mobius and Studio Soto, the Boston Harbor Island Alliance, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, and the National Park Service. The Bumpkin Island Art Encampment is curated by Megan Dickerson, Carolyn Lewenberg and Jed Speare.

Public opening reception: this Saturday April 2 6:00-9:00

Gallery hours: Friday through Sunday, 2 to 5 p.m.

Location: Mobius, 725 Harrison Ave, South End 02118
