U SAVE! 24HR Glossolalia // White Walls Boston // 2012 // Various Locations, Boston, MA
BYO Spirits to a DIY Ramblin' Revival orchestrated by Maria Molteni for the August incarnation of White Walls Boston. Glossolalia, or speaking in tongues, embraces absurdity, desperation and the complexities of communication, recognizing the shortfalls of rational vocabulary to channel greater inspiration. Join us throughout the city of Boston in a truckbed-as-pulpit, traveling to nooks and crannies most devastated or charged. Become a witness to the free-form expression of fellow artists, activists, and citizens as we blaspheme and worship, chant and charm, vent and educate. Stay tuned for scheduled performances or seize the open-mic. Release the pressures bestowed upon you by larger powers whether environmental, supernatural, or federal. We must awaken to these troubling times and find new ways to expose, communicate, and regenerate.
White Walls is a pop-up platform created by Ethan Kiermaier with support from the Berwick Research Institute. Through this project artists in Boston may engage with an audience in a forum far outside traditional galleries using rented trucks as an autonomous exhibition space.
