Join us for a conversation in the R&D Store with Amy Yoes and Creative Producer, Gabriel Sacco, as we celebrate the publication of our new catalogue Amy Yoes: Hot Corners (MASS MoCA). Afterwards we will explore Yoes’ drawing implements in a drop-in style activation to create artworks on paper in Yoes’ Hot Corners exhibition.

Saturday August 10, Noon–4pm
Noon–1pm: Catalogue Launch (The Research & Development Store)
2–4pm: Exhibition activation (B6)

Join for as long as you wish: Stay for a couple minutes to make a few remnant tracings, or join us until 4pm to dive deep and execute a series of drawings in relation to Yoes’ practice of making generative elements for artists. No pre-registration required.

About the Catalogue:
This vibrant artist book and trim monograph preserves the playfulness of Yoes’ beloved Building 6 installation, Hot Corners, wherein the artist transforms a 142-foot space into a multi-room, immersive complex with thematic forms and functions. Each of the installation’s five rooms — the Foyer, the Parlor, the Library, the Theatre, and the Drawing Room — are designed with custom-built mobile furniture acting as shifting set pieces for a variety of functions including artmaking, socializing, reflection, and performance. The catalogue is a gorgeous document of the MASS MoCA project and a deep dive into Yoes’ visual vocabulary.

Signed copies of Hot Corners will be available after the talk, along with prints from Yoes’ limited-edition Risograph series, Short Wave.
