Since opening in 1999, MASS MoCA has become one of the world’s premier centers for producing and presenting the best contemporary art of our time. With annual attendance of 120,000, it ranks among the most visited institutions in the United States dedicated to new art. More than 80 major new works of art and more than 50 performances have been created through fabrication and rehearsal residencies in North Adams, making MASS MoCA perhaps the most fertile site in the country for modern art. The museum thrives on making and presenting work that is fresh, surprising, and challenging.
MASS MoCA exhibits work by many of the most important artists of today—both well known and emerging—focusing on large-scale and complex installations that are impossible to realize in conventional museums. Their broad, soaring galleries with 110,000 square feet of open, flexible space and robust industrial character have proven both inspiring and empowering to artists.
An essential and integral part of MASS MoCA’s mission are the more than 75 performances staged year-round on the grounds. These include popular music, contemporary dance, alternative cabaret, world music dance parties, outdoor silent films with live music, documentaries, and avant-garde theater.
