Artist Liz Glynn Uncovers The Future At MASS MoCA

Amy Krzanik reports from North Adams. “Build something out of nothing” reads the wall text on the second floor of Liz Glynn’s exhibit, The Archaeology of Another Possible Future, now on view in MASS MoCA’s Building 5 gallery space. Piles of single-page newspapers make other succinct statements, also in black handwriting on a white background: “all that is solid melts into air;” “repair, refashion, reimagine;” “in ten thousand years ____________.” Glynn, in her largest-ever exhibit, which opened with an artist’s reception on Saturday, Oct. 7, ponders the past, present and future of human experience through its daily materials. Record players, wooden pallets, scrap metal, cement and soft felt mix with 3D printers and their output, delicate metal tumbleweeds, a series of catwalks, and hospital gurneys placed under tanning lamps. The goal? “Liz Glynn asks us to consider perhaps the biggest question,” says MASS MoCA Director Joseph Thompson, “What’s next for us humans?”
