A friend sent me these interesting photos from one of the current exhibits at MASS MoCA. The artists of the exhibit, titled Material World: Sculpture to Environment, use ordinary objects (e.g., aluminum, rolls of paper, rope, fishing line) to alter the existing spaces within MASS MoCA’s galleries.
The artists, Michael Beutler, Orly Genger, Tobias Putrih, Alyson Shotz, Dan Steinhilber, and collaborative team Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen, “create their work against – or in concert with – the backdrop of the museumâ€™s reclaimed factory space, its history, and its own rich assemblage of brick walls, wooden columns, steel beams, and multiple layers of paint”.
The exhibit runs until the end of February 2011 so if you’re in Massachusetts between now and then, you may want to stop in and surround yourself with these impressive installations.
