Big Fun in the Big Easy

The Prospect.2 Biennial in New Orleans opened on October 22. MASS MoCA Director of Development Jennifer Trainer Thompson and I took a group of trustees from our Tantalum Circle Member Group to see the exhibition dotted throughout the city.  The Tantalum Circle is a MASS MoCA membership group that includes travel opportunities as one of its benefits. In addition to this trip to the Big Easy, the group has gone to Sundance Film Festival, Miami Art Basel, Documenta, Ireland and Los Angeles.

Prospect.2 was the brainchild of curator Dan Cameron, the first version of the biennial took place in 2008 and included two artists with work currently on view at MASS MoCA: Nari Ward and Katharina Grosse. Prospect.2 also contains some familiar faces such as Sophie Calle (Game Show), William Pope.L, (The Interventionists); Jennifer Steinkamp and Alexis Rockman (Badlands), Karl Haendel (This is Killing Me), and Pawel Wojtasik (These Days: Elegies for Modern Times).

Pawel‚Äôs piece was of special interest to the group since it was filmed in New Orleans but commissioned for MASS MoCA, who lent the piece to Prospect.2. The photo above is of the group with Pawel in the amazing panoramic room that houses his video. The soundtrack was done by Stephen Vitiello, who in September opened a new sound installation in the MASS MoCA Boiler Plant) Read the rest of this entry »

Support Work-In-Progress at MASS MoCA

panel-361

We are delighted to be working with Dj/ Projectionist Kid Koala this December for a residency to develop a family-oriented live show based on his graphic novel/soundtrack project Space Cadet.  We have started a Kickstarter campaign to help us raise a little dough to fund residency and production costs, including artist housing and accommodations, equipment, and technical services. Everyone who donates to the cause will receive some sort of gift in return! For more details check out the campaign site.

Cheers,
Brittany

Are we your favorite Great Place in Massachusetts?

1000

The 1,000 Great Places Commission was created in 2009 to identify and recognize the 1000 most truly special places in the Commonwealth, in order to celebrate pride in our history and culture, increase knowledge of our natural surroundings, and encourage regional and international tourism.

If you’re a resident of the Commonwealth, you can visit the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism (MOTT) website to nominate us (or any other public place in Mass that you admire, we’re not telling you who to vote though we always appreciate the support!)

Only one nomination per person will be accepted.  The nomination period will close April 1, 2010. The Commission will meet later that month to draw up a final list of 1,000 Great Places in Massachusetts, which will be announced in May.

Thanks!
