At Boston Sculptors Gallery, Mags Harries Sets A Table For Community Action

“Obviously there is a metaphor in here that one table with one leg will not stand up by itself,” says Harries, a professor at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts who teaches sculpture and installation. “It is a metaphor for people getting together and creating something that functions. It might not function in the normal way, but it functions anyway.”

Mags Harries at Boston Sculptors Gallery: Adrift

Addressing themes of global warming to the survival of humankind, Mags Harries’ new solo exhibition Adrift will feature sculptural and two-dimensional works depicting subjects ranging from life vests to icebergs. In response to the political environment created by the Trump administration, Adrift alludes to the tide of uncertainty in which we are caught. Sensing a threat to our democracy, the planet, and its inhabitants, Harries grapples with glacial melts, and the turning back of migrants who have come here to establish a better life. The artist, an immigrant herself, asks, “How does one ignore these changes? How does one understand this uncertainty? How does an artist deal with these issues?”
