This Friday 12/9 & Saturday 12/10
Central Central, a documentary video and sound installation celebrating the life of the Central Square neighborhood includes scenes of places in and around Central Square: stores, businesses, a church, a coffee shop, a theater, and the weekly farmer’s market. There are portraits of people too and events such as a rehearsal of the community orchestra, a salsa lesson, and the rituals of election day. Other scenes show the public life of neighborhood as well as its buildings, streets, intersections, and bustling activity.
Central Central is a collaborative project done by students in a Harvard class in Visual and Environmental Studies with contributions by several guest filmmakers. Using two channels of projected video and four of sound, the installation format immerses viewers in the world of Central Square while allowing them to experience as much as they wish of its approximately 50 minutes of moving pictures and vividly recorded sounds.
The Central, Central exhibition will be on view at CCTV, 438 Massachusetts Avenue, on Friday, December 9th from 4-9pm and Saturday, December 10th from 1-9pm.
Admission is free.
