Save the date for three upcoming MMoCA Nights celebrations. MMoCA Nights are held in conjunction with exhibition openings, film screenings, and other special events. The evenings feature live music, complimentary seasonal hors d’oeuvres from Fresco, a cash bar, and engaging visual art programs. The evenings are always free for MMoCA members.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 • 6–9 pm
As MMoCA continues to expand its sizable permanent collection, this MMoCA Nights celebration will highlight new treasures in an exhibition entitled, Taking Their Place: Recent Acquisitions in Context. Additionally, guests will witness the grand reopening of the new media gallery, aptly titled, the Imprint Gallery. At 6:30pm art historian Michael Jay McClure will moderate a discussion between new media artists Kim Schoen and Cecelia Condit. The Bartell Bros. will perform live and guests will be treated to hors d’oeuvres in the lobby.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10 • 6–9 pm
This MMoCA Nights offers a rare opportunity to hear artist Natasha Nicholson provide insight into her work and creative process. Just before and following her 6:30pm talk, guests may explore the exhibition, Natasha Nicholson: The Artist in Her Museum. This unusual yet inviting installation will encourage museum attendees to consider the process of artistic creation, while simultaneously serving as a space to present a comprehensive career survey. Trap Saturn will perform genre-fusing music live in the lobby as guests enjoy passed appetizers.
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4 • 6–9 pm
