Join us on October 26 to celebrate the opening of three new exhibitions: Sarah Oppenheimer: S-334473, Jenny Holzer, and ERRE: THEM AND US: ELLOS Y NOSOTROS.

Sarah Oppenheimer’s work pivots between sculpture and architecture, disrupting our experience of spatial continuity and shaping our experience of the built environment. For MASS MoCA, Oppenheimer will re-orient S-337473 (developed with the support of the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio) along B6: The Robert W. Wilson Building’s northern processional axis.

In 1977, Jenny Holzer began to paste posters on the streets of New York City: anonymous, alphabetical lists of concise statements on subjects including capitalism, class, sex, and love. In the years since, Holzer’s pithy, often enigmatic messages have infiltrated everyday life through materials from benches and LEDs to condom wrappers and tea sets. A cross-section of these objects is included in Holzer’s new installation, which spans the artist’s career to date.

Artist ERRE, who lives and works between Tijuana and San Diego, has made the U.S.-Mexico border a central part of his work for over two decades, examining its oft-forgotten history and shifting contours (California, Texas, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and parts of Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, and Oklahoma used to be part of Mexico), as well as its current social, economic, and political implications.
