Jen Bervin premieres her Creative Capital Project, "Silk Poems"

May 28 2016 - Mar 01 2017


1040 MASS MoCA Way
North Adams, MA

Opening Reception:

May 28 2016

MASS MoCA curator Denise Markonish remarks, “the state of wonder agitates, mesmerizes, and is almost forcible and shocking. It is a sudden intake of breath, a gaping mouth, a relinquishing of understanding.” As commonly used, “wonder” is sometimes mistaken for curiosity, which centers on the practice of fact-finding and explanation. In Explode Every Day: An Inquiry into the Phenomena of Wonder, viewers experience a purer state of wonder, a liminal state of being poised between knowing and not knowing, and defined by an experience of something truly new.

The exhibition includes twenty-three international artists, including Lucien Castaign-Taylor, Verena Paravel, and Jen Bervin, who will premiere her Creative Capital-supported project, the Silk Poems.
