NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — If you’ve been meaning to take a trip to the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), now’s a better time than ever. On May 28, Building 6, a three-story, claw-shaped structure that was renovated and designed by American architecture firm Bruner/Cott, opened on its industrial campus and doubled the museum’s gallery footprint — rounding out at 250,000 square feet — and adding a significant chunk for outdoor installation. With the new building come long-term installations and collaborations with Laurie Anderson, Louise Bourgeois, Jenny Holzer, Mary Lum, Gunnar Schonbeck, James Turrell, and more, as well as rotating exhibitions with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation collection and Artist-in-Residence program. Since it opened in 1999, MASS MoCA has focused on putting the work of well-known and emerging international artists from different disciplines in conversation, and Building 6 continues this trend.
