Museum Town

Streaming now

“A deceptively breezy retrospective on MASS MoCA‘s unlikely success; [Museum Town] illuminates how and to what extent art and cultural institutions can help revive communities under duress.” — Hyperallergic

With appearances by artists ranging from James Turrell to David Byrne, narration by Meryl Streep, and a soundtrack from John Stirratt of Wilco, Museum Town tells a tale of great risk, hope, and power of art to transform a post-industrial city. Find an independent cinema near you streaming it below.


In Session

Recorded panel discussion

If you missed the live stream of our first In Session panel discussion, you can still watch the full recording on MASS MoCA‘s YouTube channel. Moderated by artist M. Carmen Lane, panelists Nick Cave, Shaun Leonardo, Steve Locke, and Xaviera Simmons discuss how museums and artists represent Black and Brown trauma in artwork, exhibitions, and performances, and how they should navigate the resulting implications and challenges.


Support Your Museum

This year we were wonderstruck by the strength of MASS MoCA’s community as thousands joined together to keep the museum afloat. Now, as 2020 comes to a close, we ask for your support once again.

Help ensure that MASS MoCA is ready to embrace tomorrow, whatever adventures it may bring. And we’ll celebrate together again soon.
