MAAM From Home
While the museum staff is working from home we want to bring MAAM to you.
Enjoy behind-the-scenes content from our current exhibitions; artmaking activities for all ages; highlights from past exhibitions; and a few surprises along the way!
Ghost of a Dream
Watch Ghost of a Dream, the collaborative project of Lauren Was and Adam Eckstrom, give a tour of their home studio and discuss some of their recent projects.
See artist Joana Vasconcelos working in her studio as she talks about the inspiration for her U.S. museum debut, Valkyrie Mumbet.
“Valkyrie Mumbet is a symbol of freedom, a symbol of women, and how you can transform your own life by your acts.”
MAAM Executive Director Lisa Tung remembers our 2006 exhibition Shintaro Miyake Presents Beaver No Seikatsu.
14 years ago we shot a beaver film with artist Shintaro Miyake. For his North American debut Shintaro chose to be a beaver, an animal indigenous to our continent. With the help of MassArt students Shintaro built an “artistic” dam and lodge; went shopping for lumber; and ate pancakes. The exhibition included the film, drawings, woodcuts, and a mural drawn by the beaver over three days in the Bakalar Gallery.
As a teaching museum we strive to support educators as best we can while we remain closed. Our staff has created resource packets, in English and Portuguese, as a way for students to continue engaging with our exhibitions and community. If you would like to integrate our exhibitions into your curriculum, please contact us for more information.
