A while back, we featured a group called GLOVEBOX in a Horses for Courses post (about arts orgs that identify a very specific need and then shape their org and its programs to meet that need).
I love the way the founders of GLOVEBOX (Liz Comperchio and Jodie Baehre McMenamin) saw how difficulties that emerging artists face, like finding exhibition opportunities and a supportive community, could be turned into an organizational mission.
Until now, GLOVEBOX has primarily worked with visual artists, curating intriguing shows like JUNKO REVIVAL, an exhibition of “junk”-themed art, installed in a second-hand clothing store. This year, GLOVEBOX will be hosting its first-ever film festival, to screen on June 11 at the Somerville Theatre.
