The Institute of Contemporary Art at the Maine College of Art in Portland will present “Rally,” a juried exhibition of works by artists who explore identity, memory, erasure, projected narrative and the architecture of image.

The show runs Wednesday through Oct. 9, with an opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday.

The five artists employ various media — painting, drawing, photography and sculpture — to portray the transformation of the world.

“Rally” highlights new work by five alumni from MECA’s bachelor of fine arts and master of fine arts programs: Quinlan Corey (MFA ’06), painting; Kreh Mellick (’05), illustration; Andrea Raynor (’92), photography; Edward Lott (’05), woodworking and furniture design; and Aaron Williams (’94), painting. In addition, a video screening will feature the work of Brett Walker (’06), photography.

In conjunction with the exhibition, participating artists will deliver public lectures in Osher Hall. All lectures are free and begin at 6 p.m.

The ICA at MECA, 522 Congress St., Portland, is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, with extended hours to 7 p.m. Thursday and until 8 p.m. on First Fridays.

Admission is free. Call 699-5029.
