Watertown, MA Art Event and Film Screening to Connect the Public in a Timely Dialog for Peace


Watertown, MA (PRWEB) September 26, 2014

During the entire month of October, the Watertown Free Public Library will display a Peace series of artwork in its gallery space that is striking a pertinent and necessary dialog in these times of social unrest. The loss of innocent lives is a tragedy always, and it affects humanity locally, as well as in a wide circle that ripples outward to encompass the whole world. The artist responsible for the Peace series of art, Youxin Yang, is a Cambridge, Massachusetts based painter and filmmaker who expresses herself across a broad range of mediums, but always with the concept of promoting peace at its center. The work that will hang in Watertown is currently on display for the month of September at the Arts Club of Washington DC. The paintings will be accompanied by a musical video film, which will screen at the exhibition reception.

When terrorism hit close to home during the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, Ms. Yang grieved the loss of innocent lives by painting a large and looming painting titled Peace- VI Boston Marathon 2013. By displaying this painting in Watertown, with its direct connection to the terrorist suspects chase, which took place April 19th of last year, Ms. Yang hopes to bring the event full circlea place of closure, where people will begin to heal and understand. The understanding is key. Peace is not any sort of given condition of the world; it is something we work towards earning. It is whats on the other side of global mutual respect; a place that, as a species, we have yet to attain collectively. Its difficult to remember the fear and the tumult, but unless we take time to remember, we will forget, and if we allow ourselves to forget, we will never reach understanding.

Watertown is the place where Dzohkhar Tsarnaev, in his desperate attempts to escape police custody, ran over the body of his seriously wounded brother, Tamerlan. Watertown is also where Dzohkhar was finally apprehended, hiding out in a boat parked in a backyard like hundreds of others just like it. Its heartbreaking to remember the details, it has been a year and a half and we have moved on, but there it is, vivid and visceral, every time terrorism rears up on the news. Innocent journalists are being beheaded and the recorded footage is being sent into the ether to further propagate terror by ISIS.

Now especially it is important for us to understand and make peace with that which frightens us, as Youxin Yang does through her art. The short, musical film that will be screened during the Watertown Free Public Librarys reception event is of special note here. The piece is titled Peace – Melody Under Brushes, Part 1: Baby get rid of that dark obsession please!. It bears pointing out that in this song addresses the terrorists directly, and it addresses them as baby; because all people, whether wrong or right, were once someones little darling, were once innocent and wide-eyed, filled with wonder at the world around them. This is when the intervention needs to begin, suggests Ms. Yangs song. The performers for this project were: Berklee College of Music Associate Professor, Didi Stewart, in the role of the friend. The mothers vocals are provided by Berklee Associate Professor, Jeannie Gagn
