It is an eclectic exhibition entitled “In the Eye of the Beholder” that opened at Midway Studios (15 Channel Center in South Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood) last week. There are colorful abstracts, collages and wall installations, all of them worth a more-than-passing glance. But the most striking part of the overall displays is the uniquely designed fashions – both practical and, well, a bit impractical (to select a word).
These wearable fashions – true works of art ¬– reminded one of the larger and heavily advertised (but no more striking) exhibition of fashion, “#techstyle,” now being shown at the Museum of Fine Arts. (The MFA’s exhibit opened last month and runs through mid-July.)
The message here is for you to take a pleasant evening spring walk down A Street to Channel Center Way #15, and then take a look at an excellent exhibition. A long look. There’ll be a grand finale to “In the Eye of the Beholder” on Friday, May 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. Don’t miss it – you’ll still have time for a late show or dinner afterwards on the Waterfront.
