Performance Art: Camp Solong
Camp Solong is an ongoing collaborative project by the Berlin-based artists Dafna Maimon and Ethan Hayes-Chute. Comprised of a three-day "psychic reconfiguration of the American summer camp", so far held in Germany/Finland and coming to Maine in August, it focuses on the act of saying goodbye and the need for self-care and communal healing in modern society. An exhibition at SPACE in Portland ME, which runs June 1–23, presents an overview of the project through media and installations. Opening on Friday, June 1, 5:00–8:00 pm.

Inventur—Art in Germany, 1943–55
The first exhibition of its kind, "Inventur" examines the highly charged artistic landscape in Germany from the mid-1940s to mid-1950s, at a time when Germans were forced to acknowledge and reckon with the atrocities of World War II and the Holocaust, the country's defeat and occupation by the Allies, and the ideological ramifications of the fledgling Cold War. Runs until June 6 at Harvard Art Museums.
