This Saturday at beverly:

Kevin Harris’ birthday and oblivion: quantitative measurements of reality (metaphysical and otherwise)

February 22 – March 15, 2014

Opening reception Saturday, February 22, 7-10 PM

An immersive sound, video and sculptural installation by Kevin Harris that dismantles beginnings and endings through infinite, elusive systems.

Inspired by the teleological fantasies of conservative economic theorists such as Francis Fukuyama, who declared capitalism to be the historic end-point of civilization, this exhibit subverts the fundamental material of capital as well as linear narrative.
