Join us for the opening of Written in Smoke and Fire an exciting new exhibtition featuring the work of Edgar Arceneaux. Edgar Arceneaux’s work in installation, sculpture, drawing, photography, and video, draws inspiration from a wide-ranging set of sources: American history, astronomy, science-fiction, architecture, music, and movies. His solo exhibition at the List Center presents three major, interlocking projects that reflect on history and remembrance, and consider how specific national, cultural narratives change over time. 

The artist will be at the opening and refreshments will be provided. Come help us welcome and celebrate this new exhibition in Cambridge. 

The reception is free and open to the public although registration is required.
