The Art Now Speaker Series welcomes MASS MoCA curator Denise Markonish to campus to speak about this unique museum in western Massachusetts made up of 150,000 square feet of exhibition space.

Markonish will provide an introduction to the space and some of its past exhibitions and talk at length about her Oh, Canada project. This show was the result of five years of travel and research across Canada (and over 400 studio visits), and showcases the work of 62 artists and collectives from all across the country. To accompany the MASS MoCA exhibition, Markonish edited a 400-page catalogue co-published with The MIT Press.
