Event Details

We’re doubling in size beginning May 28, with an all-day celebration to mark the monumental expansion, featuring a members’ preview, a Soundsuit parade, and a concert with veteran rockers CAKE.

MASS MoCA launches into the summer season with the opening of Building 6, the third phase of campus development that encompasses 130,000 square feet of interior renovations to the museum’s 19th-century mill buildings, and features work from artists Robert Rauschenberg, Louise Bourgeois, James Turrell, Jenny Holzer, Laurie Anderson, and Gunnar Schonbeck (Bang on a Can). Additional artists to be shown in Building 6 include Spencer Finch, Dawn DeDeaux, Lonnie Holley, Mary Lum, Barbara Ernst Prey, Janice Kerbel, Joe Wardwell, Sarah Crowner, Richard Nonas, and the Optics Division of the Metabolic Studio.
