Visions of Enchantment

Share:

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston presents fantastical visions and magical scenes by five contemporary photographers: ‘Make Believe’ is on display from 20 July 2019 to 20 January 2020.

‘Make Believe’ transports viewers into an enchanted realm where sleeping figures float, women weave spiderwebs, magicians cause children to disappear, and homemade airships fly over icebergs. The group exhibition brings together five artists who stage fantastical scenes in order to address a wide spectrum of social and cultural issues – including the role of women in the Middle East, climate change, the passage from childhood to adolescence, and existential fears of loneliness and loss.

The represented artists are Iranian photographer Shadi Ghadirian (b. 1974), Dutch artist Hellen van Meene (b. 1972), Italian photographer Paolo Ventura (b. 1968), and the artist duo Nicholas Kahn (b. 1964, USA) and Richard Selesnick (b. 1964, UK).
