This year, MASS MoCA’s biggest party came home to North Adams, Mass. Attendees joined us for an unforgettable evening to celebrate MASS MoCA, featuring EJ Hill’s Brake Run Helix in Building 5, dinner curated by Boston Chef Douglass Williams, a performance by Machine Dazzle, and a lively auction in support of the museum’s mission. We ended the evening in style—dancing the night away at the gala After Party to tunes from Miami’s DJ Esta. Your support makes it possible for artists, collaborators, and creative partners to dream a way forward.

In September of 2019, Machine Dazzle premiered his original show, Treasure, at the Guggenheim Museum as a commission by Works and Process. Treasure was a music theater work with original songs and narrative performed by Machine Dazzle. The three sold out shows also featured a 13-member fashion show, designed by Machine Dazzle. Produced with music director Viva DeConcini, Treasure is a future psyche-sex-adelic synth rock experience with stories about Machine’s mother, their relationship, and the legacy she left to him. At the root, Treasure explores how stories, narratives, and beliefs are enforced and reinforced in the home. Undressing layers of his past to make sense of the present, Treasure features stories told and stitched together through song. The evening’s performance will feature a short selection of songs from Treasure.
