2021 Artist Fellow Darren Cole
“When Up, Look Down” is a multi-channel video installation at the Old South Meeting House that challenges the viewer to imagine themselves in the past, and explores historical themes of belonging, race, and religion within the context of Old South Meeting House’s marginalized congregants.
The piece was created by inaugural 2021 Artist Fellow Darren Cole, a Boston-based artist originally from Kansas City, Missouri, who produces site-specific interactive moving image sound works.
Behind the Scenes
The Artist Fellows program at Revolutionary Spaces opens the doors for new voices to find meaning and connection in the narratives and ideas housed in these two sites. We have partnered with the public art curators at Now + There to identify artists whose unique perspectives will penetrate the veil of the mythology surrounding our history and advise them on their projects. Both buildings and their shared legacy of protest and debate serve as platforms for Massachusetts-based artists to share their visions of history, community, and the struggle for all people to be heard.
