In these trying economic times, continuity often demands a hit to ones pride, or a duck from moral standards. BEG BORROW STEAL assembles the work of a variety of emerging artists who embrace theft and appropriation as key elements in their creative process.
BEG BORROW STEAL is a group show of 35 young artists, juried and curated by Aaron M. Segal, a MassART graduate. Aaron is currently the art preparator of the LaMontagne Gallery. His objective for the show was to organize a group of peers, who may at this point in their careers still have limited access to commercial galleries, and give them the opportunity to show in one of Boston’s best. In the spirit of the show, the LaMontagne Gallery has been begged borrowed and stolen while Russell LaMontagne is on vacation, hopefully he won’t mind.
