pinkcomma strives to make design more pivotal in the city's political and cultural discourses. The gallery's role is often activist in nature, promoting works that may be at times politically unpalatable or financially untenable, unpopular or unacknowledged. The gallery highlights innovative thinkers of diverse interests who call Boston home. Their works offer us a window into the city's design underground, and by finding connections between architecture and other disciplines, pinkcomma makes these fields accessible and interesting to many different audiences. For example, a recent series of exhibitions and events explored the relationship between architecture and media—specifically, through architectural zines, books, newspapers, and their consumption—while another highlighted modernist city planning, politics and redevelopment policy through Boston's famous and under appreciated stock of concrete buildings. Both initiatives are ongoing and research-based, and have taken various forms as exhibitions, panel discussions and publications: instead of being finite or complete, they are continually in process.
