Current: Kenji Nakayama & Pat Falco
11.10.17 – 1.5.18
Reception: 11.29.17, 6-8pm
Like many artists, Kenji Nakayama and Pat Falco treat their shared studio as a site for creation and display. The two have worked in the same space for the past three years in the Distillery building in South Boston. Unlike a cleanly arranged white cube gallery, they have created an environment that speaks to the varied contexts of their artistic processes. Their finished artworks and works in progress hang side-by-side with pieces they’ve collected from their peers, and throughout the space are readily available conceptual and material sources: from paint cans to exhibition catalogs, political posters to Easter ornaments, saws to surfboards.
Current will take form as an evolving installation, bringing elements from the artists’ studio into the gallery to create a site for active artistic production and presentation. Modeled after their shared space, they will set up work stations to make art, adding to the display throughout the exhibition. Students of the UMass Boston Art Department, as well as visiting artists, will be invited to participate in making and displaying new work in the gallery. Current is organized in collaboration with the artists, Kate Ostreicher, and Sam Toabe.

OPEN Gallery is pleased to host Pat Falco's Luxury Waters, the artist’s second retail intervention in Boston. Known for political satire and a folk Boston aesthetic, Falco brings his critique to housing justice with a collection of plans, processes, research material, and marketing objects for a 62-story luxury triple-decker rising from the Fort Point Channel waters in Boston’s Innovation District.
As Tech commodifies labor at an increasing rate, automating the segregation of rich and poor and concentrating wealth in our cities, the way we build and regulate housing matters. Luxury Waters questions who gets to live in our cities of wealth.
In Luxury Waters, Falco has developed a series of works which juxtapose the abundance of “market rate” housing against the social injustices on which it is built. Falco’s drawings, sculpture, and installations tell the story of a design process forged in the image of a society obsessed with deregulation, automation, and unhinged growth.
Luxury Waters recontextualizes the processes of luxury housing production into a cartoon space that speculates on the outcomes of real estate development ideology. The appropriation of working class design, the construction of housing at sea level without consideration of climate change, the isolationism of tech housing on commuter corridors, and the blatant manipulation of inclusionary housing regulations, all point to the bleak conclusion that Falco considers in this installation.
By separating the language of development from any specific building, Falco creates a rhetorical space for reflection that challenges the narratives embedded in our built environment. This interruption of the future cities discourse shines a light on the invisible hand of housing development.
JUST NOT BREAK, Pat Falco
1/11 – 3/12/2017
Reception: 3/9/2017, 6 – 8PM
Boston-based artist Pat Falco creates text-based works that reside in the intersection of personal and political poignancy and the playful mundanities of everyday life. Falco’s work offers an authentic examination of the human experience through drawings and paintings that are both tender and sardonic, excavating devastating and hilarious truths about the U.S. political climate, historical events, the art world, love and loss.

Yeah, You Missed It! And perhaps, that’s the point. You missed it. This exhibition continues to explore the very temporary placement of art in both traditional and nontraditional venues. The show, part of an ongoing series, features a rotating group of both artists and curators, organized by Robert Moeller, who work together to program very brief pop-up exhibitions. These can range from informal backyard events to the embedding of new work into an existing art collection in someone’s home for an evening. This exhibition at the Mills Gallery, lasting only two days, has in its title the most likely response to questions about its brief existence: Yeah, you missed it!
