With a thriving community of entrepreneurs, artists, and businesses located throughout the expansive campus and some of the most creative spaces and art in all of New England, MASS MoCA makes a perfect place to get lost — and found — this season.


RESOLUTION: Find Joy in Community

MASS MoCA After Hours 

Celebration of EJ Hill: Brake Run Helix

Saturday, January 13, 5–8pm

Join us for a celebration of EJ Hill: Brake Run Helix honoring regional BIPoC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) artists, writers, and performers in the Berkshires. Brake Run Helix is a celebratory work by EJ Hill examining how those from marginalized backgrounds explore joy and play — and in that spirit, we bid it farewell (closing February 11) with a BIPoC mixer in the exhibition’s gallery including dancing and activities from the diaspora.


EJ Hill: Brake Run Helix

On view through February 11

“An unconventional and ambitious undertaking for both the artist and the institution.” – Hyperallergic

Filling MASS MoCA’s 100-yard-long Building 5 gallery, Brake Run Helix is EJ Hill’s largest installation to date. The artist’s exhibition is an offering to our community — not only to experience the individual and collective joy of the roller coaster at its center, but also to activate the exhibition’s stage through conversations, performances, and gatherings in the spirit of joy. 

Reservations to ride Brava! are on sale for the duration of the exhibition, so be sure to reserve yours today.
