Second Saturday BADA Event: October 13, 2018, 2:00-4:00 pm, Art in the Age of the Anthropocene: a Boston Art Dealers Association panel discussion Moderated by Sam Toabe, Gallery Director at UMass Boston's University Hall Gallery.

This panel discussion, titled in reference to Walter Benjamin’s essay Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, will focus on how our current ecological age, the Anthropocene, has influenced the solo-exhibitions on view at the Kingston Gallery: Linda Leslie Brown’s “Plastiglomerate” and Phyllis Ewen’s “Deep Time.” Brown and Ewen will be joined by artist Evelyn Rydz and moderator Sam Toabe in a discussion that will investigate the temporal and ecological scales in which contemporary art is taking form, to talk about how these artists’ practices relate to one another and are influenced by current issues surrounding art and the environment within personal, art historical, and social narratives.
