Boston Globe art critic Cate McQuaid recently gave a great review to artist and filmmaker Kerry Tribe’s ‘Onomatopoeia’ multimedia exhibition exploring memory, language, communication, and their inherent limitations.
Our internal meaning-making systems are unique, so we may not ever truly know another. But “Onomatopoeia” offers hope we can connect in the not knowing, and persevere alongside each other.
The exbibit, free and open to the public, is on view through March 27 in the Emerson Contemporary Media Art gallery.
