Shih Chieh Huang combines his longstanding fascination with technology and the materials of modern life to transform mundane manufactured objects into novel and complex sculptural forms in the exhibit Reversible Universes. In reviewing the exhibit, one reviewer had this to say: “The darkened room transports you suddenly to the depths of the ocean, or the far reaches of outer space. It is quiet, peaceful, and reflective.” Our tour will also take us to 80 previously unprinted 1897-1917 photographs of William Bullard, which examine the role of photography as the vehicle for a “new Black identity” during the early years of the New Negro movement. After our private tour, we’ll have lunch at the Museum before returning to Boston. Van departs Café Tatte, 70 Charles Street, at 9:15 a.m., and Starbucks, 165 Newbury Street (between Dartmouth and Exeter), at 9:20 a.m. BHV members: $50. Guests of BHV members and prospective members: $65. Trip price covers van transportation and tour of and admission to the Museum. Lunch is pay individually.
