We’ll Be Back!

September 20, 2011
We’ll Be Back!

It’s been difficult for the Art Review writers and editors to maintain full schedules of academics, rehearsals, and writing. We feel very strongly that it’s important to provide reviews of Harvard student work done by students themselves involved in the arts at Harvard. But rehearsals get in the way, a show takes over your...

Cabot House Musical Lives On

April 19, 2011

This year’s Cabot House Musical is a production of Annie Get Your Gun, the fictionalized story of Annie Oakley. The show is particularly poignant for Cabotians as the first show to be produced without the guidance and encouragement of the late Susan Livingston, Cabot’s beloved housing administrator. Cabot tutor (and last semester’s Acting Resident...

It’s a FACT: Bevil Conway Explores Color and the Brain

November 21, 2010

Bevil Conway’s “FACTS” exhibition at the Radcliffe Institute is a difficult one to decipher: there are no labels or explanations to guide the visitor through the gallery. Thematically, the exhibition appears to lack conceptual cohesion.  Although most of the artwork consists of watercolors, there is also a series of sculptures in glass boxes.  What,...

Hyperion Shakespeare Company Feature

November 21, 2010

Harvard’s campus is made up of hidden locales that few know or make use of and are considered jewel-like study spots: the garden behind Lamont, that hidden alcove in the tunnels of Cabot House, the random rooms on the second floor of the Science Center in the Math department.

Christine Goerke at Tufts: Big Heart, Big Voice

November 21, 2010

It is difficult to attend professional vocal recitals in the Boston area without emptying out your wallet out for a seat, which is why I was thrilled to find that soprano Christine Goerke was giving a recital at Tufts University’s Distler Hall on Friday that fit a student budget.

Harvard prides itself on being at the forefront of most academic fields, but when it comes to the visual arts, the institution produces a relatively small number of practicing artists each year. Despite the administration’s efforts to strengthen the on-campus arts community, historically, the practice of art has not been the university’s forte. The...

Invisible Cities

May 1, 2010

“Memory’s images, once they are fixed in words, are erased.” Italo Calvino’s poetic prose, framed in crisp vinyl lettering, sends viewers on their way through the exhibition space. Moving down the corridor, they are met with a montage of mixed media, images, objects, text, and aesthetic. A deliberate composition of the works contributes to...
