Installation by Naoe Suzuki
ARTIST TALK AND RECEPTION: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 5:00 P.M.
FREE with reservation
EXHIBIT ON VIEW September 12–November 1, M–F 9:00 A.M.–7:00 P.M.
Naoe Suzuki presents excerpts from her Artist–in–Residence projects at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, a leading biomedical research institute. In this new iteration at Babson College, she will compose two pieces that use magic spells from the Edwin Smith Papyrus, the medical papyrus in ancient Egypt that included prognosis for the first time in recorded history. These pieces create rich dialogues, provoking and responding to each other, and offer viewers a deeper reading on topics such as medicine, progress, knowledge, belief, loss and discovery, and the cycle of exploration. Above all, they defy logic and resist singular reading on complex topics on science, progress, and history.
Jamie Kent and Friends Concert

BabsonARTS is proud to welcome Jamie Kent ’09 back to campus as part of the Centennial Celebration. Named by RollingStone.com as an “Artist You Need to Know,” and dubbed a “Must Watch Artist” by The Huffington Post, Kent has quietly been making waves across the country as an artist, entrepreneur, and songwriter over the past decade. His songs have been heard across major network television, from the most recent Google Pixel worldwide ad campaign, to NBC’s The Today Show and World of Dance. Apart from his own music, Kent is the founder of “New Nashville Live,” a traveling showcase of Nashville’s fastest rising talent and was recently named one of the Best Shows at SXSW by Rolling Stone. Jamie headlines a concert featuring some of the talented musicians from Babson College, Olin College of Engineering, and Wellesley College including the Babson Music Collective and Sababa.
