5000 Moving Parts
The MIT Museum will launch a mesmerizing exhibition of contemporary kinetic art in the fall of 2013, and we're inviting the Museum's many fans to help us "jumpstart" the fundraising.
From almost 20 years of visitor comments about the Museum's exhibition of Arthur Ganson's work, we know there's a collective of individuals out there who will want to be a part of this exhibition.
5000 Moving Parts will feature a new work by Arthur Ganson, sculptures by Anne Lilly, John Douglas Powers, and Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (and more!). The exhibition will look at the wide range of kinetic art being made now: from work that's concerned entirely with motion and unpredictability, to sculptures that engage with contemporary political topics, to work that brings ancient myth into contemporary life.
Much more information about the exhibition, including videos, bios of the artists, and news about the campaign, is available here. We hope you'll join us as we create this exciting new exhibition!
