Mass Ave Project: From the Charles River to the Arlington border

For the past year, Baden has been photographing on Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge, which runs through many very different neighborhoods like a spine through the city. "The Mass Ave Project" addresses rhythm and change in daily life for people and residential and commercial structures. The project arose from talks with Lillian Hsu, Director of Public Art at Cambridge Arts, about changes in Cambridge, and how they might collaborate on an exhibition that focused on the public realm – an underlying narrative of all exhibitions in Gallery 344, at Cambridge Arts in the City Hall Annex. Baden and Hsu felt that Mass Ave would generate a rich and diverse photographic portrait of the City. The exhibition will be shown from November 2019 through February 2020 at Gallery 344, and will consist of four components: (1) photographs on the wall, (2) Baden’s experience in executing the project, (3) a freely accessible digital photo archive, and (4) a panel discussion.
