MASS MoCA  A museum like no other.


What's next for Building 5? Los Angeles-based artist Liz Glynn is about to present her most ambitious project to date. Taking viewers on a phenomenological journey from the analog past to the uncertain technological future, Glynn's sprawling architectural installation features caves made of forklift pallets, a maze of sea containers, scaffolding towers, active 3-D printers, a postindustrial ruin-cum-vacationland, and catwalks suspended a precarious 14 feet above the floor. Digging into the past to see what the future holds, The Archaeology of Another Possible Future is a landscape both uncharted and unsettlingly familiar.

Members' opening reception: Saturday, October 7, at 5:30pm

"Values become engulfed in miniature, and miniature causes men to dream." — Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space.

Utilizing one of MASS MoCA’s largest exhibition spaces on the museum’s second floor, King examines the notion of radical smallness, or what French philosopher Gaston Bachelard has called “intimate immensity.” Through exhaustively detailed sculpture and video animation, King brings to life her miniature figures.

"We must add to our heritage or lose it." — George Orwell

For local architects Tessa Kelly and Chris Parkinson, that meant designing and building pop-up writers' studios inspired by five Massachusetts-based Renaissance authors — from Herman Melville to Henry David Thoreau — and the homes the lived in. The studios are now on the MASS MoCA campus to inspire writers through smart, minimalist design and a drop of history. Reserve your afternoon at massmoca.org/event/mastheads/

Available for 3-hour blocks starting at 11am or 2pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays through October 30.

Broken But Still Strong. Lonnie Holley's deeply personal and affecting work is on view together with Dawn DeDeaux's in "Thumbs up for the Mothership."

Ranging in tone from honeymoon to heartbreak, The Half-Life of Love explores the melancholic experience of romantic encounters: the heady sensation of first looks, the affective ebb of time, and the traces of a lover’s absence.

Brandi. Carlile. Bringing the rock n roll to FreshGrass Festival. It's a beautiful Berkshire night, and we're in heaven. We're at the Hunter Center stage next for The Hackensaw Boys' late-night hoedown. #freshgrass

Classic films rescored with live and original music. It’s moments like @freshgrassfestival's FreshScores that make this festival weekend so special. Dom Flemons, Sunny Jain, and Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards presented their sweet and imaginative works this afternoon in the Hunter Center.

Deceptively simple yet highly complex, Sol LeWitt's Wall Drawings are created from an intricate set of instructions and diagrams. Nearly 60 people helped craft 105 of them at MASS MoCA, which now occupy over an acre of space. One artist's account of the experience: “detailed, painstaking, and strangely liberating.” .

MASS MoCA turns from big to infinite when you step into Laurie Anderson's virtual world. One VR work places you inside an airplane, which slowly dissolves until you are just hovering in space, with only Anderson's voice as pilot and guide. In The Chalkroom, a second VR piece, Anderson has covered the walls, ceiling, and floor with words and drawings that glow in the black-lit space. You'll find yourself gliding weightlessly through a labyrinth of rooms, with text and stories flying by as you enter Anderson's inner world.

Lost in Building 6? Just follow the light. A key piece of the Building 6 remodeling was folding back the roof to create a dramatic light well, which now serves as a wayfinding point in the new 130,000 square foot space.

The Boiler House, commissioned by Sprague Electric Company in 1947, is now home to two art installations: "All Those Vanished Engines," a soundscape by Stephen Vitiello, and, up the stairs and over the catwalk, "all utopias fell" by Michael Oatman. As you walk through the structure, you'll discover remnants of three boilers, coal hoppers, steam fittings, ash disposal conveyors, and little details that take you back to the mid-century.
