Contemporary Art Gallery
Part of Locally Made’s One Room.
In Assembly, gather for casual meetings of the minds and unexpected happenings curated by local artists and designers. Congregate for poetry readings, sonic performances, movement, projection, and more.
Jori Ketten curates Inside Voices from 7/30 - 8/4.
Set down what you carry. Lower your voice, raise your attention. Join these artists, selected for their practice as world-makers, as they take you on sensory excursions inside their environments. Gentle and sure, grounded and experimental, curious and complicated – each day will bring new experiences of gravity and wonder. — Jori Ketten
7/31: Marguerite Keyes
Narrative performance told through assembled artifacts and small sculptures. Possible video projection as well. — Marguerite Keyes
Free with museum admission.
Jori Ketten is a founder and curator of 186 Carpenter, a storefront and office space that presents arts programming and current events. A printmaker and bass drum player in the 20+ person brass/punk band the What Cheer? Brigade, she also currently directs the Media Lab at Community MusicWorks, helps young people reflect on their learning through photography and video projects, and cocoordinates Providence Provision, the Providence HONK Festival, and workers’ rights campaign JoeyQuits.com.
Calling herself an artist has helped Marguerite get away with many things. She also uses this title as an excuse to ask important questions and for creating her own solutions. Marguerite likes to tell stories with her artwork. She builds narrative through sculptural installations that range in scale from larger than life to tiny worlds that are best viewed with a magnifying glass. She uses found materials and relics pulled from the cracks of old floors. She has held solo and group exhibitions in Reykjavík, Iceland and across New England. Marguerite received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, and currently lives in Providence with her partner and their daughter.
