Trip: McMullen Museum of Art to see the exhibit: Martin Parr: Time and Place
April 21, 2022 @ 10:00 am
The bus departs at 10:00 am for a trip to the McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College to see the exhibit: Martin Parr: Time and Place. Martin Parr: Time and Place features at its core a career-spanning selection of Parr’s Irish photographs, which describe the radical evolution of Ireland over the last four decades and the major themes of his work—social class and consumption, curiosity and humor, humanity and its predictable idiosyncrasies. Photographs from other series, Autoportraits, The Last Resort, Small World, and The Cost of Living—made in Europe, North America, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia—demonstrate how Parr developed a powerful vocabulary of visual and conceptual ideas informed by overlapping feelings of familiarity and alienation, and instincts that are anthropological as well as artistic. Approximate return: 1:00 pm. Fee: $20 for transportation. Sign up at the Front Desk under “Trips.”
