Tala Madani and Villa Design Group Opening
Join us for the opening of two new exciting exhibitions: Tala Madani: First Light and Villa Design Group: The Tradegy Machine. The artists will be at the opening and refreshments will be provided. Come help us welcome and celebrate two new exhibitions in Cambridge. List Projects: Narrative Color will also be open during the reception.  More about the artists:  Over the past ten years, Tehran-born and Los Angeles-based Tala Madani has developed a signature practice centered on playful yet provocative representations of men. Her paintings, drawings, and stop-motion animations—characterized by loose, expressive brushwork—combine a gestural figuration with mature and often disturbing subject matter. These bracingly deadpan works satirize conventional notions of masculinity, recasting the male figure in various scenarios that both mock virility and redistribute the dynamics of power. Bright pastel color fields form the ground for base group scenes in which balding, rotund, and mustachioed middle-aged men blindly follow each other in circles, undergo interrogation, and perform various humiliating acts. Unflinchingly scatological and abject, Madani’s works encourage a larger consideration of authority, desire, and shame. Villa Design Group employs writing, performance, sculpture, and film to create a hybrid “theatre of design” that supports the group’s interest in queer histories, the aesthetics of cultural value, and the radical potential of viewing current society through the history of conservative political regimes. Particularly inspired by 1980s Italian design and architecture group Memphis and the Ballet Russes, active in the early 20th century, references in their work range from literature to the history of fashion and decorative arts.  In this pursuit, the group seeks to create “queer objects”—objects “coded with narrative possibilities, which…can perhaps smuggle in a kind of radical moment that does not depend on visualization of a radical body.”

Lunch & Learn - “So Hemed In”: Land and Identity Among the Middleborough Indians (Speaker: Jon Green)
When studying colonial Massachusetts’s history, our focus is often drawn to settlements such as Plymouth, Weymouth, Boston, and Dorchester. While the events that unfolded in these places shaped the unique cultural landscape that emerged in the latter half of the seventeenth century, other locations slightly further afield from these colonial hubs were equally significant. On the western frontier of the Plymouth Colony, in the area of present-day Middleborough, Taunton, and Bridgewater, Wampanoag people and English colonists frequently traded goods, worked side by side, and built close bonds of friendship. It was also in this area that Titicut, otherwise known as the Titicut Plantation, remained an active and culturally vibrant Native community in the aftermath of the Pequot War, King Philip’s War, and the French and Indian War. Over time the Wampanoag, as well as members of other tribes such as the Nipmuc, Massachusett, and even the Pigwacket of Maine, formed what came to be known as the Middleborough Indians. Looking closely at this little known Native community reveals the political, racial, and religious dynamism that characterized the meshing of Native and English cultures during the late-seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Biographical Information Jonathan Green is a 2010 graduate of Stonehill College where he earned a degree in History. Since graduating, Jon has worked as the Assistant Archivist at Stonehill, helping preserve and manage a variety of digital and physical collections. In 2014, he took on the position of Curator for the Milton Historical Society, as well as the duties of caretaker for the Suffolk Resolves House, located in Milton, MA. Jon is currently working on finishing his master’s thesis, which examines the role of aquatic environments in preexisting Wampanoag and English religions and economies, in order to determine how rivers, swamps, and the sea factored into the coalescence of and conflict between these two cultures in southeastern Massachusetts during the seventeenth and early-eighteenth centuries.

"Next Chapter Meeting" tab Ron Muhlenkamp is an award-winning investment manager, frequent guest of the media, author, newsletter publisher, and featured speaker at investment shows nationwide, Mr. Muhlenkamp’s entire business career has been devoted to the professional management of investment portfolios. Ron’s seminar will tackle the new and emerging landscape for Americans’ retirement that is changing from the tacit agreement that has been in place for generations.  And how an extended period of ultra-low interest rates has severely compromised future income streams critical to retiring, changing the rules of the game for annuities, CDs, and bonds. Lou Conrad has over 25 years experience and award-winning work in wealth management including managing funds for Sentinel, Shawmut National Bank, and Fidelity.  He is also past president of AAII Boston Chapter and currently consults and advises on mutual funds and asset allocation strategies.  Lou’s presentation will show how investors are notoriously bad at managing their portfolios to generate a return that at least keeps pace with broader market indices.  He reveals the behavioral biases investors suffer from that can lead to suboptimal investment decisions… and what you can do to address those biases and become a more successful investor.

Footprints in the Concrete Screening
Footprints in the Concrete is a musical depiction of how a family, church, college and community came together to save a fatherless youth, trapped in a cycle of hopelessness. Currently the President of HOPE Multimedia Company, Domingo Guyton often reverts back to his childhood as a struggle; attempting to survive in the mixed pot of drugs, misogyny and violence that Boston, MA had delved out in the late 1980’s. Born to a single mother on welfare, Guyton went through a series of events that spun his life out of control by the age of 15. Continuously searching for his father for over 30 years, he finally found him on Facebook. Guyton adds that many of his past issues were due to not having a father in his home, but after connecting to his heavenly Father, the latter years of his life were rewarding and he has achieved great success overall. Interviews are with Grammy award winning Feliciano “Butch” Tavares, Dr. Ulric Johnson from Teens Against Gang Violence and host of friends and family members who recall the turbulent times and recall the influential part that music, hope and faith in God had on turning Guyton’s life around.

Thomas grew up on a farm in central Indiana where he was constantly creating with his hands, whether it was art, music or framing a barn window broken by a fallen tree. Matthew began woodworking over 10 years ago when he discovered a stack of fine hardwoods in the haymow of the barn. Since then, he has  grown into an artist focusing on fine furniture that blurs the line of sculpture. Matthew has spent time working as a bartender, web designer and a lawyer, but his passion has always been music and art which he now pursues as a full-time career at the Artisan's Asylum.
