A resident of the South Shore neighborhood in Chicago, Majeed transforms materials such as particle board, scrap metal, and billboard remnants, breathing new life into these often overlooked and devalued materials. For his first exhibition in Boston, Majeed has created two large-scale site-specific installations in the Grossman and Anderson galleries at SMFA at Tufts, engaging with architectural, institutional, and community histories. These works take inspiration from the institution-building legacies of Boston cultural icon Ms. Elma Lewis and Chicago artist, educator, and poet Dr. Margaret Burroughs.  10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ARTIST RESPONSE: CALLING ALL DENIZENS The Courtyard + The Well (Lower Level) Artist Response is an initiative that highlights how artists have used creative strategies to respond to historical and contemporary social crises. For the fall 2019 semester, Artist Response features Calling All Denizens by Kimi Hanauer. Hanauer cofounded Press Press—an interdisciplinary publishing enterprise that focuses on immigration and race in the United States—and presents Calling All Denizens as a billboard, installation, and reading space that imagine “denizenship” as an alternative to the traditional notion of citizenship. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. STUDENTS CURATE STUDENTS: ERASURE Weems Atrium STUDENTS CURATE STUDENTS: VERDANT Building A Gallery
