Cambridge, MA — Irish artist Rosalind Murray creates playful, intimate and poetic narratives through performance. Murray draws and sings her way around the urban environment of the City of Cambridge, and the rural environment of her hometown, Carlow, in the river Barrow valley in Ireland. Lateral Canal Ahead is a poetic detour of gallery works and live performances made on and around train tracks in Cambridge and canal tracks in Carlow. Within these frames, Murray finds inspiration and curiosities from a parallel past of industry that shapes our lives and landscapes. Lateral Canal Ahead, takes place October 11 through December 9, 2011 at the CAC Gallery at the Cambridge Arts Council, 344 Broadway, 2nd Floor. The Artist Reception on Thursday, October 13, 6:00pm-8:00pm features a performance by Rosalind Murray. More performances in Cambridge will take place the week of October 11, 2011.

From the 1850s until 1945, frozen water was harvested in blocks from the pond, packed tightly onto trains, transported to boats, and sent off to destinations as far as the Middle East. The infrastructure of train tracks laid to facilitate this trade shaped the outline and foundation for the landscape of Cambridge and surrounding towns we experience today.
