Simon Starling Opening Reception

Saturday, December 13, 2008, 5:30 pm
Building 5
Free for members / $6 for not-yet-members

Be the first to see this new site-specific exhibition by Turner Prize-winning artist Simon Starling, which takes as its departure a photograph of Chinese laborers who were brought to Massachusetts in 1870 to break a strike at the Sampson Shoe Company (a factory once located on what is now the MASS MoCA campus). Interested in the photograph as a receptacle for meaning as well as for certain quantities of metal, Starling mines the history of this photograph both literally and metaphorically. The artist has extracted two silver particles from the photograph’s emulsion. With the aid of an electron microscope and advanced data imaging technology, he will present these tiny image fragments as immensely enlarged sculptural phenomena.

Opening Reception from 5:30-7:30 pm (remarks at 6:30 pm)

Please RSVP by December 5th to 413.664.4481 x8112 or rrice@massmoca.org.

After the opening, join us for a work-in-progress showing of we become by dance company-in-residence LAVA. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
