Running through Nov. 22nd, MIT visual arts professor Joan Jonas transforms the five galleries of the U.S. Pavilion to achieve a complex work through a multilayered ambience, incorporating video, drawings, objects and sound.

Blanc Gallery: Evidence to the Contrary
Community arts venue Blanc Gallery is well known for its support of the underground and unconventional, specifically in spotlighting emerging artists. Their current exhibit Evidence to the Contrary does just that by challenging the art-goers expectations through the mediums of graffiti, tattoo, printmaking, painting and sculpture. By presenting viewers with unpredictable placement of objects as opposed to traditional wall hangings, “Evidence to the Contrary forces the viewer to consider the stages that come before the gallery” and determine at what point they become art.
