Gallery 5 seeks to engage the larger art community of Boston and vicinity with the goal of positioning Emmanuel College as a viable and significant participant in contemporary art. With its active exhibition schedule, opening receptions, and artist talks, Gallery 5 actively engages the discourse of contemporary art with the goal of introducing this discourse to the Emmanuel College community and beyond.
Gallery 5 provides an essential exhibition space for the Emmanuel College Art Department. The Gallery is consistently active with exhibitions of work by professional artists, emerging artists, artist residents, outsider artists and Emmanuel College art students and alumni. The Gallery is utilized by faculty throughout the year as an educational tool that supports their teaching through the organizing of exhibitions with themes that are directly related to Art Department course content.

Welcome True and Untrue
December 4 - February 2, 2018
Curated by: IICAT guest curatorial collective
"My current work is attempting to capture some kind of essence of our current historical moment. They are abstract paintings made with slippery language, spray paint, and an abundance of acrylic paint. The language contains truth, lies, exaggerations, multiple readings, ambiguity, sidesteps, delusions, profundity, and dream-logic. I am working with the mechanics of language and the building blocks of meaning, arranging and rearranging letters and words to be carried away by the viewer."
"The goal is to blur the boundaries and make the audience believe that the story happened in Miami. My idea is to demonstrate that today misfortune can happen to everyone and that the place you come from is not important. In France, it is a common idea that misfortune only affects people from poor neighborhoods and that everything is more or less their fault."
