The Borgia Gallery at Elms College will feature the work of The Imaginative Action Regime titled, The Los Angeles Project, in September and October. The opening reception for the exhibit will be held 4-6 p.m., September 28 in the gallery, located on the second floor of Mary Dooley College Center on the Elms College campus.
The Imaginative Action Regime is an abstract organization that mixes absurdist humor with idealistic 1960s radicalism in the contemporary milieu. The Los Angeles Project, the Regime's first collective body of work, is a reaction to The Manhattan Project.
Writers Richard Froude, Jim Goar, Matthew Langley, Dan Chelotti, Grace Yukich, Jonathan Yukich, and Aaron Eilers contribute letters, documents, and poems on the current condition and climate in America. Chelotti is an assistant professor of English at Elms College and Jonathan Yukich is an adjunct professor of dramatic writing. Artist Stacy Elaine Dacheux uses recycled materials, graphite, and acrylic paint on handmade wooden panels to visually translate and continue the conversation. Chelotti, Dacheux, and Grace Yukich will be in attendance for the opening reception.
Both the gallery and the opening reception are free and open to the public. The exhibit will be on display through October 21. The Borgia Gallery is open 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. daily but will be closed on Monday, October 8 in observance of Columbus Day.
