MASS MoCA Celebrates in 3-2-1!

Amy Krzanik reports from North Adams.
On Saturday, April 6, MASS MoCA marked the conclusion of its Oh, Canada show and the opening of three new exhibits with the 3-2-1! Celebration, a night jam-packed with events. The evening commenced with a cocktail party in the galleries and a silent auction in the lobby, where attendees could bid on art by Sanford Biggers, Mark Dion, and Moyra Davey, among others. The artists who created the night’s three debut exhibits — Life’s Work: Tom Phillips and Johnny Carrera, Mark Dion: The Octagon Room, and The One Minute Film Festival — were on site to discuss their work. Artist Johnny Carrera (near left) and Center for Book Arts founder Richard Minsky are shown in front of one of Carrera’s works. A benefit dinner followed under Xu Bing’s fabulous, large-scale Phoenix project in Building 5, and the night culminated in a dance party with Canadian DJ King Khan, a self-described “spiritual guru,” spinning a blend of vintage soul, R&B, garage rock, and funk. All proceeds from the evening support new work made at MASS MoCA.
