Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art
Location: North Adams, MA
2013 Exhibitions: Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective (TBA), Stephen Vitiello: All Those Vanished Engines (TBA)
In the distant past, the red brick buildings that house MASS MoCA manufactured shoes, textiles for the Union Army, and early electronics. Now, this former factory seeks to re-invigorate cultural and economic life in the post-industrial town of North Adams. MASS MoCA provides over 100,000-square-feet for large-scale contemporary art installations, as well as additional space for dozens of music, dance, and avant-garde performances. This museum represents an edgy, exciting attempt for art to save the world.
