The Nanjing Particles Installation

From fabulous Marketing Intern Caitlin Foster:

Today I peeked into Building 5 with a few of the other interns to check out the latest phase of installation for The Nanjing Particles, Simon Starling’s upcoming show at MASS MoCA. Being able to witness the actual installation of a show as massive as Starling’s has been fascinating, and something I have been making a point to check out from week to week. Building 5 is open to the public during the process of setting up the show, something you don’t usually see in most museums, making it all the more worthwhile to observe. The installation is based on a photograph of Chinese workers brought in to break a strike in a shoe factory that was formerly housed in what is now MASS MoCA’s campus. This week saw Starling and the crew applying wallpaper depicting the expounded photograph to the large forms that you see when you first enter the room.

The Opening Reception for The Nanjing Particles will be held on Saturday, December 13 from 5:30-7:30 pm (remarks at 6:30 pm). The event is free to members/ $6 for not-yet-members. RSVP to the Opening Reception by calling 413.664.4481 x8112 or by e-mail. 

After the opening, join us for a work-in-progress showing of we become by dance company-in-residence LAVA.

Go Downtown for Art before Burtynsky

We’ve got Edward Burtynsky giving a talk on Thursday 6/26 at 7 but you should come to North Adams early to go to the opening of the Downstreet Art project.

There’s a ton going on on Thursday and its just the start of a great summer of art in North Adams. Here are some details:

There are SEVEN new galleries and nearly TWENTY art destinations including some with strong ties to MASS MoCA like: Primary Secondary Volumes 1 & 2 at 28 Holden Street which features the work of 20 of the drafts-people working on the Sol LeWitt project and Maya III by Jarvis Rockwell at 73 Main Street. You may remember Maya II which was here with Game Show in 2001. Its a nine-foot-tall pyramid covered with action figures plus a site specific wall drawing by Jarvis.

We’re just scratching the surface. There’s a great deal to see and its open all summer and into the fall.

On Thursday you can also celebrate with some of the participating businesses. Shima,Crafty Creations, Second Chance will all have extended hours. Shear Madness will have free eyebrow waxing; Papyri Books will host a sidewalk chalk project; Moulton’s General Store and I Got Goodies will have free chocolate and fudge samples; Cup & Saucer and The Hub will be offering DownStreet Art menu specials and Cafe Latino will host the official after-party.

Hope to see you there!

More to love

If you love Denise Markonish’s new exhibition Badlands, you’ll find plenty more of her curatorial talents to love around the region this summer. Here’s the roster of exhibitions she’s curated this summer:

Those of us for whom a super-productive weekend  means getting rid of 2007 New Yorkers and replacing the paper towels in the kitchen are awed by Denise’s productivity and salute her success.

Opening party

We’re so lucky to have friends like Leslie Ferrin (of Pittsfield’s Ferrin Gallery) who comes to the Badlands opening, takes  great photos,  and posts them on wonderful blogs like Rural Intelligence. It was a beautiful night and our first outing under the Wapenaar Pavilion for the season.

You’ll find more photos and coverage at The Pit and Berkshire Fine Arts will likely post something soon.
