Looking for something to do this winter, but short on ideas? Check out some of these upcoming visual arts events headed to Boston.
‘Latoya Ruby Frazier: WITNESS’
Latoya Ruby Frazier’s latest exhibit at the ICA was actually started when she was still a teenager living in Braddock, Pennsylvania. Frazier describes the exhibit as “the story of economic globalization and the decline of manufacturing as told through the bodies of three generations of African American women.” Her images capture what life was like for women in the home and her main subjects are her Grandma Ruby, mother, and herself – including several dual self portraits of both her mother and herself. Frazier is currently the Associate Curator for the Mason Gross Galleries at Rutgers University and Critic in Photography at the Yale School of Art. Her photographs and videos help to bring attention to her hometown and other similar towns around the country.
Now-March 2. Institute of Contemporary Art, 100 Northern Ave, Boston. 617-478-3100. www.icaboston.org
'Sarah Braman: Live'
Amherst artist and 2013 Maud Morgan Prize recipient Sarah Braman is known for breathing new life into inanimate objects, from old furniture to car parts to simple household items. In her latest collection, “Sarah Braman: Live,” Braman uses video, paint, and motion to show her love of cycles, which include the changing of winter to spring, stillness to motion, and life to death. “Sarah Braman: Live” opens at the Museum of Fine Arts on Nov. 23 and will run through March 30.
Now-Mar. 30. Museum of Fine Arts, Avenue of the Arts, 465 Huntington Avenue, Boston. 617-267-9300. www.mfa.org
