Material World: Painting and Sculpture as Environment

MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA
April 24, 2010-March 1, 2011

Curator: Susan Cross

The museum invited ten artists to create environments that responded to, altered or transformed the existing galleries in the unique buildings at MASS MoCA. Each of the artists worked in a humble material, from paper to cardboard to Styrofoam, and explored the formal, plastic and spatial potential of their various mediums. Transforming architecture into art and art into architecture, the exhibition was an engaging visual and physical experience that looked at various ways artists are approaching painting and sculpture as environment.
