Xu Bing: Phoenix (w/ music by Wilco) from The Dark Sky Company, LLC on Vimeo.
Drawing inspiration from the contemporary realities of his fast-changing country, Chinese artist Xu Bing spent two years creating his newest work, Phoenix. The installation features two monumental birds fabricated entirely from materials harvested from construction sites in urban China, including demolition debris, steel beams, tools, and remnants of the daily lives of migrant laborers. At once fierce and strangely beautiful, the mythic Phoenixes bear witness to the complex interconnection between labor, history, commercial development, and the rapid accumulation of wealth in today's China.

This year: two new culinary events on Saturday that celebrate the food and spirits of the Berkshires and benefit education at MASS MoCA! Learn more here.
In conjunction with this summer’s Solid Sound Festival at MASS MoCA, New York-based conceptual sculptor Marko Remec will install a constellation of works called Totally Totem. On view through the summer, the sculptures transform everyday objects such as mops, brooms, telephone poles, and rearview mirrors into contemporary totems.
