Here and Now Exhibit
In September 2003, the CyberArt: Here
and Now explored the complex interactions between art and
technology. The month long exhibition included print, sculpture,
animation, and video art by David Gordon, Doctor T, and
Walter Wright. Weekly performances of live video manipulation,
music, stand-up comedy, and contemporary and historical
film were also included. From the mechanical donation box
to the "VideoJAM" all aspects of this show reflected
technology through the eyes of the artists. The assemblage
of artists and performers for Cyberart: Here and Now were
from a wide range of disciplines and came together to create
an assemblage as eclectic and varied as the technologies
represented in the show.
Comedy Performer- Cambridge Fringe
Productions presented comedy and parody on our television
viewing culture. The performance at HOME’s black
box theatre was part of Cyberarts Here and Now exhibit.
During June and
July 2003, HOME, Inc exhibited a retrospective photo documentary
exhibit on Media Projects HOME developed with the Boston
Public Schools, Youth Enrichment Services, Boston Against
Drugs and others. The exhibit entitled Then and Now
includes historic photographs of the Thomas Plant Shoe Factory,
where HOME got its start in 1973, and photos of Public Art
installations sponsored by HOME, Inc. over the years.

The exhibit provides a glimpse of some
of HOME’s many community arts projects. Come learn
how youth media projects can engage young people in issues
that concern them and their community. Learn how projects
are staged and developed to help teens partner as problem
solvers with adults. Some of the artists from the Bates
Art Center are exhibiting their work as part of the the
exhibition on view. Enjoy a bit of HOME’s history.
Then and Now is open to the public from 10
