A Process of De-Capsulation:
Joe Joe Orangias: Repurposing Architecture

Sept. 5–Oct. 13

Foster Gallery opens the 2012-13 season with an exciting installation. Boston-based artist JoeJoe Orangias has created a portable, mobile hotel based on his experiences travelling the public spaces of Boston and Japan. Orangias has created a work, The Capsule Hotel, that is interactive, provocative, and ever changing. After being shown in Boston and Provincetown, the latest iteration of The Capsule Hotel will be shown in Foster Gallery. It will be modified by Orangias and Nobles’ visual and performing art students over the run of the exhibition. The piece offers a dialogue for viewers about post-consumer waste, domesticity and public space, queer culture and class systems.
