Bottom Line College Expo

BottomLine is hosting a college expo where young people in their program talk about and table for the colleges they are attending - so instead of having to talk with an admissions officer, young folks can talk to their peers.

The College Expo program will run from 1:00pm-3:00pm. There will also be a special info session at 12:30pm for those interested in signing up for and learning more about Bottom Line!

The Bottom Line College Expo will give you the opportunity to speak with college students from 20+ colleges in Massachusetts, learn how to determine which college is the best fit for you, and about Bottom Line’s College Success counseling program.

Snacks and refreshments provided. This event is casual dress.

HARD: Subversive Representation
Feb

6:00 PM18:00

HARD: Subversive Representation

  • UMass Boston: University Hall Room 1220 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Artists include: Berenice Abbott, Joan E. Biren, Ianna Book, Furen Dai & Bihua Zhan, Diana Davies, Samantha Fields, Ariel Basson Freiberg, Janet Loren Hill, Zanele Muholi, Christie Neptune, Rachel Rampleman, Betty Tompkins, Anabel Vázquez Rodríguez, Del LaGrace Volcano, and Summer Wheat.

HARD is a group exhibition that brings together artworks from self-identified female artists who take different approaches to representing female subjects, often through subversive frameworks. With artworks spanning 1923–2018, it argues that Contemporary, Post-Modernist, Modernist, and Feminist artistic approaches have and continue to expand the dynamism of the feminine image, pushing beyond stereotypical, reductive, and unrealistic visions of women.

This exhibition contextualizes artists from Boston within a cast of national and international artists of the past and present. Artworks focus on gender politics, identity, and intersectional feminism through figurative and abstract representations. Complex and compelling images and sculptures present depictions of transgender, cisgender, and non-gender normative female subjects to expand upon our view of the female experience. The public reception will take place on February 15th, 2018 from 6-8pm. Light refreshments will be served.

Event is free and open to the public.

Torrey Pines
Feb

to Feb 17

Torrey Pines

  • Black Box Theatre at the Emerson/Paramount Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

It's an animated film. It's a live pop-rock band. It's a queer, coming-of-age road trip like none other. It's Torrey Pines!

Raised by a schizophrenic single mother who was consumed by conspiracy theories and family dysfunction, award-winning filmmaker Clyde Petersen’s adolescent years unfolded like a surreal and confusing dream. Based on a true story, Torrey Pines tells a trans-queer-punk, coming-of-age story, rich with ‘90s pop-culture references—everything from Star Trek to Nintendo. Seattle's own Your Heart Breaks performs the quirky, catchy, and moving score, featuring cellist Lori Goldston, a one time member of such beloved bands such as Nirvana and Mirah.

FEB 14-17 7PM

Black Box Theatre at the Emerson/Paramount Center
