About this Event
While the physical Boston Cyberarts Gallery interior remains closed due to COVID-19, the gallery is hosting a series of art events and exhibitions to be seen from outside the gallery. "The Window Show" is an ever changing art exhibition in the Boston Cyberarts Gallery windows.
The Studio for Interrelated Media Majors have responded to the unprecedented challenge of a global pandemic by launching SIMtv - a concept, a context, a website, and an episodic venue for sharing SIM student and alumni art.
For this exhibit, you'll see a silent installation of SIMtv displaying the work by SIM students and alumni responding to these challenging times.
This exhibit is one of the many events celebrating the Massachusetts College of Art and Design's Studio for Interrelated Media (SIM) 50th year. SIM is the oldest Bachelor of Fine Arts program in the country of its kind. The program has continuously evolved since its founding in 1970 while maintaining a dedication to self-governance alongside the exploration, combining and inventing of any expressive mediums we can find. The mission of the Studio for Interrelated Media is to conjure ambitious and unexpected experiences. It is to fail spectacularly, embrace chaos, invent new worlds, antagonize and enlighten, foster understanding and test limits. Every cohort shares the final challenge of redesigning the studio as a model for an alternative future. The SIM flies in the face of all that is Post Art - with humor, conflict, labor, and skill.

FROM SIM STUDENTS:
"For months the students of SIM, at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design have powered through remote-learning and online collaboration to put on a show that embodies the experimental, concept-driven, and multimedia backbone of our program. Given the trials and tribulations we’ve faced throughout the pandemic, the yearning for physical experiences has become more heightened than ever. This showcase is a bridge between the digital world we’ve been limited to and the interactive one we all know so well. The artists of SIM faced the challenges of this time with out-of-the-box thinking that produced a collection of thoughtful, vibrant, and energetic work that has brought this show to life. Though the concept of each project ranges greatly, the intrinsic bind between all the work is our shared experience of creating within isolation."
