    The Strange Taxi, Stretched is an adaptation of an autobiographical photomontage Lorraine O'Grady made in 1991. In both the original and the stretched versions, female members of O’Grady’s family emerge through the roof of a New England mansion and escape the limitations placed on them in post-World War I Boston.

    Boston's Apollo

    Thomas McKeller and John Singer Sargent

    February 13 - May 17, 2020

    In 1916, John Singer Sargent met Thomas Eugene McKeller, a young Black elevator attendant, at Boston’s Hotel Vendome. McKeller posed for most of the figures—both male and female—in Sargent’s murals in the Museum of Fine Arts. The painter transformed McKeller into white gods and goddesses, creating soaring allegories of the liberal arts that celebrated the recent expansion of the city’s premier civic museum.
