A&E Pick of the Week

Watching the installation of “Donna Huanca: MAGMA SLIT,” a commissioned exhibition from the Bolivian American artist set to open at the Henry Art Gallery April 2, what’s immediately evident is the magnitude. For Huanca’s exhibition, the floors of the gallery are as white as the walls and at the center is a large platform shaped like a cell just beginning to divide. On that platform, explained Shamim M. Momin, the Henry’s director of curatorial affairs, will be 15 tons of white sand.
