Auditory After Hours: Jason Moran

Saturday, February 6, 13 & 20
7pm, 7:30pm & 8pm

“A date night…where we [could] forget about COVID.” — Charlie, Auditory After Hours visitor

Put down the puzzle, turn off the livestream, and treat yourself and that special someone to a night out surrounded by 250,000 square feet of art and distance. The limitlessly innovative jazz pianist, composer, and bandleader Jason Moran merges the visual and the sonic in an Auditory After Hours specially designed for and inspired by Sol LeWitt’s groundbreaking wall drawings. Valentine’s may be a bit different this year, but we’ve got you covered. 

Now available: choose to dive into the Auditory After Hours’ back catalogue and listen to Clipping’s underwater soundscape from December or Sylvan Esso’s previously sold-out indie-pop soundtrack, upon request. Just speak with the event staff when you arrive on the night of to gain access to these past Auditory After Hours.

Advance, timed tickets required


Made at MASS MoCA

English with an Accent with Migguel Anggelo

MASS MoCA started off the new year by opening our stages and studios to the creative team behind English with an Accent, a new production in development by multidisciplinary performance artist Migguel Anggelo with musical direction by Jaime Lozano and directed and choreographed by Sarah O’Gleby. The tale of a recently emigrated “insect” in New York City, English with an Accent is inspired by Anggelo’s own story as a Venezuelan transplant, and explores the poetic parallels between the immigrant experience and the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to butterfly. The work will be released as both a concept album of original music and a video album of musical, narrative shorts for virtual presentation.


Artist Roundtable: 

Reimagining Care of Indigenous Objects


“As an indigenous person alive today…looking at these amazing objects that are out of context, we have to really hold it together to build a context not only for ourselves but for our children and our community.” — Tanis S’eiltin

Thanks to all who tuned in to our Artist Roundtable last week with exhibiting artist Wendy Red Star in discussion with artists Tanis S’eiltin and Peter Morin, as well as Christine Oricchio, Collections Specialist at the National Museum of the American Indian. If you missed the livestream, you can still watch the full recorded discussion on MASS MoCA’s YouTube channel.

Learn more about recent MASS MoCA exhibiting artist Shaun Leonardo in a new Art21 feature Shaun Leonardo: The Freedom to Move. Hear from him about his formative years and the ways that art has allowed him to expose and distort societal perceptions of Brown and Black people, and, in the process, make sense of his identity. Watch the film, out today, here.

The health and safety of all MASS MoCA visitors, staff, and artists are our top priority. Advanced timed tickets, masks, and social distancing are all required while visiting. Learn more about the safety measures MASS MoCA has in place here and read our COVID Courtesy Code here.
