When we grow accustomed to our day-to-day environment, we may come to believe that the spaces we live in are unremarkable. Artists like Tonawanda, New York, native Sarah Braman (American, born 1970) hope that we can take another look. Braman encourages us to think about the ways in which function, history, aesthetics, and spirituality continually shape our immediate environment. Brought meaningfully to the forefront of our minds when we encounter Braman’s sculptures, we are, at least momentarily, unable to remain indifferent to these spaces.

Nature meets contemporary art in Sarvisalo, Pernaja. The Zabludowicz estate hosts an artistic residency for young, international artists, whose work can be seen in different ways on the island. Art has spread to Sarvisalo, but the idyllic seaside venue is only open to public on special occasions so this exhibition offers an exciting opportunity to see works from Sarvisalo in the city.
This exhibition drawn from the Zabludowicz Collection presents contemporary art from nine artists who have visited or been exhibited in Sarvisalo.

The exhibition debuts new sculpture, painting, and video by artist Sarah Braman. For the MFA, Braman has designed works in dynamically leaning cubes of colored glass that will respond directly to the natural glow emanating through the vaulted glass ceiling in the Linde Family wing for Contemporary Art.
My Crippled Friend investigates the recent history of the intersection of painterly abstraction and the object. While “painting as object” has often been a formalist issue, the works in this exhibition gather their identity through the subversion of formalism—scrambling and reassembling themselves in an aesthetic shell game where the act of painting is always an investigation of a painting’s ability to push into objecthood.
PAINT THINGS navigates the recent direction of contemporary artists to expand painting beyond the stretcher into sculptural forms. This group exhibition focuses on the growing spatial and material freedom in painting as it merges with installation and sculpture.
Braman will receive a $10,000 award and her work will be presented in the MFA’s Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art in November 2013.
