Artist Talk: Daniel Callahan

April 21, 2023 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Headshot of Daniel Callahan, photographed by Jonathan Turner.

Join artist Daniel Callahan for a discussion about his multidisciplinary work and its themes, influences, and evolutions. Topics range from mediums to mysticism, afrofuturism to art advocacy, personal and community expression, and the role of art, culture, and ritual in human society.

This talk takes place in connection with Daniel Callahan: En-MassQ, an exhibition of works of art from two of Callahan’s recent series. In these series, Callahan documents his practice of MassQing (the artist’s alternate spelling of “masking”), a ritual painting of the face used to reveal one’s inner essence. Through this practice, which derives from ancient traditions of body painting, Callahan seeks to find “connection and communion with all things” and to share this sense of harmony with others.

Daniel Callahan is a multimedia artist, award-winning filmmaker, and designer. His work has been featured at the Museum of Fine Arts, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Institute of Contemporary Art, New Orleans Museum of Art, and Queens Museum, as well as in publications such as Believer Magazine, The Bay State Banner, Smithsonian Press, and Words Beats & Life: The Global Journal of Hip-Hop Culture. He holds an M.F.A. in film and video from Emerson College and a B.A.S. in fine arts and Africana studies from the University of Pennsylvania School of Design.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the Artist’s Resource Trust.

ADMISSION: Free
Registration optional. Walk-ins welcome.
