Matthew Day Jackson:  The Immeasurable Distance 
Matthew Day Jackson:  The Immeasurable Distance, is a solo exhibition of works based on Jackson’s research as an artist-in-residence at MIT. Jackson’s complex research, histories, and hagiographies are manifested in sculptures, constructed paintings, unmanipulated objects, books, and videos. In this exhibition, Jackson continues his investigations into human consciousness and explores how positive evolutionary developments in human thought and culture occur under physical or mental stress. Other works explore how constructive and destructive technological developments often stem from the same impetus to expand human experience despite all odds, proving that progress is possible, whatever the risk.

From the Collection:  Duncan Campbell’s Bernadette
Duncan Campbell’s film Bernadette presents an unconventional yet insightful portrait of Irish dissident and political activist Bernadette Devlin. Campbell’s film utilizes archival material, found footage, animation, and scripted voice-over to upend the formal conventions of documentary filmmaking.
