Sarah Malakoff, Domesticated Interiors


Untitled Interior (sofa and tree),

Sarah Malakoff (Roslindale, MA) makes color photographs of unpopulated interior spaces. She refers to them as "examinations of the home as both a refuge from and at times a re-creation of the outside world." Nature plays a large role in her photographs, which prompt speculation about boundaries and resemblance.

Then/Now: Recent Work by PRC Founders Carl Chiarenza and Chris Enos
November 10, 2010 - January 9, 2011
Panel Discussion:
Friday, November 12, 6pm

Opening Reception: Friday, November 12, 7:30pm, PRC Gallery

Carl Chiarenza, Peace Warrior (Don Quixote) 188, 2003

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the PRC gallery and the 35th anniversary of the founding of the PRC, the PRC will honor two individuals who were instrumental in the PRC's history and photohistory in Boston, Chris Enos and Carl Chiarenza.  Along with recent work by Enos, the PRC will showcase the traveling exhibition from the University of Richmond Museums, Peace Warriors and Solitudes: Recent Photographs by Carl Chiarenza. 

Both Enos and Chiarenza wore many hats in the PRC's history and were important members of the Boston photography scene at a critical time. Besides their intersecting history, lifelong careers in photo education, and mutual friendship, Enos's and Chiarenza's work shares aesthetic and conceptual affinities, including the use of recycled materials, the transformation and abstraction of the image, and references to painting and landscape. This show celebrates these two remarkable artists and individuals as well as the past and future of the gallery and the PRC itself.

Peace Warriors and Solitudes: Recent Photographs by Carl Chiarenza - Organized and circulated by the University of Richmond Museums, Virginia

Something "Triiibal" is Happening Behind the Curtains at 808


We're not sure what "Eden" consists of for the Triiibe triplets and Cary Wolinsky (their photographic Boswell), or how much progress they're making as they search for it in the provocatively closed-off space up the street from the PRC. Or whether their installation has anything to do with photography, aside from the history of intriguing images that all admiring spectators bring to encounters with this creative enterprise. But I know that the gallery hours there will see some of us wandering over to check it out; stay tuned for reports from the neighborhood.
