MASS MoCA: Benefit Auction 2019
Artsy presents MASS MoCA: Benefit Auction 2019.
MASS MoCA, in North Adams, Massachusetts, is one of the world’s liveliest and largest centers for making and enjoying today’s most evocative art. With more than 250,000 sq. ft. of gallery space and over 75 performances year-round, MASS MoCA embraces all forms of art: music, sculpture, dance, film, painting, photography, theater, and new, boundary-crossing works of art that defy easy classification. Much of the work shown and designed within MASS MoCA’s expansive network of repurposed, late 19th-century factory buildings and interior courtyards is created during extended fabrication and rehearsal residencies that bring the world’s most brilliant and innovative artists to North Adams. The museum constantly reinvigorates its galleries and stages every season with new exhibitions, dynamic programming, and performing arts.
During its annual benefit this year, MASS MoCA will honor Paola Prestini and Nick Cave & Bob Faust for their contributions to MASS MoCA and to our nation’s cultural heritage. MASS MoCA’s Annual Benefit is the most significant fundraising event for the museum each year. The purchase of tickets and donated artwork provides nearly one third of the museum’s total programming budget, and 95 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to work in the galleries and on stage.
Bid on 10 works of art by artists including Robert Longo, Josephine Halvorson, MacArthur award winner Jeffrey Gibson, and Cauleen Smith.
