VIEW THE ZINE

THE METASCHEMATIZONS
was the inaugural show of queer artist collective Boys Be Good and the launch of the first Boys Be Good zine of the same name. The event took place at Morton Fine Art in Washington, DC the night of July 22nd, 2011.

An Incomplete Manifesto on Change
Change. It is in every song, opera, movie, advertisement, television show, memory. It is the root of conflict, love, community, basic life. We gather around transition, surrendered to it. THE METASCHEMATIZONS is about this and that. The nothing, the in-between, the everything, this living metamorphosis. A great work of art defines the human and monumental poetry of transition. The Boys introduce themselves as a small tribe of beings coping with flux. What is different now, though, is the choice. We are no longer victims of imposed alteration, but participants. The moment we decided to embrace the ignorance we saw as a void was the day we married change. The emotional stridency of this milestone is shared, and contagious. We all bring unique tools and perspectives to address the nuances living inside incessant reconstruction.
