re: Development – A Curator’s Talk with Curator Maggie Cavallo
Implied in our contemporary understanding of the word “development” is a suggestion of progress, economic gain through the cultivation of properties, the erection of buildings; linear forward motion and visible growth. This definition evolved out of the late 19th century, with an emphasis on what it meant to bring out the latent possibilities of land or property, yet the terms develop and development evolve from a much richer set of Old French roots (desveloper) with an emphasis on unwrapping, unfurling and revealing a true meaning.
In Boston, the relationship between urban development and the arts remains a source of conflict, opportunity and conflicted opportunities. re: Development asks artists to reconsider their definitions of development in order to unveil the true potential of our private and shared public spaces.
Curator Maggie Cavallo will share the development of the program concept and touch on various works in the exhibition.
