All Day @ Gallery 5, 400 the Fenway (5th floor of Emmanuel College administration building)
Sofie Elana Hodara spent June at BoxoProjects artist-in-residence, right outside of the Joshua Tree National Park. There, she collected the sounds of dying or injured Joshua trees in and around the park, keeping detailed records of the sites of each recording. Steward in Memoriam is an exhibition of documentation of her time there.
