Building 6 Opens at Mass MoCA

May 28, 2017

MASS MoCA already occupies one of America’s more unique exhibition venues: a historic 28-building factory campus on 16 verdant acres in Western Massachusetts. This month, the opening of the newly renovated and restored Building 6 adds an additional 130,000 square feet of space to that already impressive site, effectively doubling the institution’s gallery footprint while adding art fabrication workshops, music festival amenities, performing artist support facilities, and more. The post-and-beam, light-flooded space will focus on customized installations and exhibits emphasizing the connections between art and architecture, like the inaugural works on view by James Turrell, Louise Bourgeois, Sol LeWitt, Jenny Holzer, and many more. 1040 Mass MoCA Wy.; massmoca.org.
