Up the River (North Adams, MA)

factory buildings near mostly uncovered cement with small stream at one side

Flood chute containing the Hoosic River with the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art looming on the left. North Adams, Massachusetts.

As such it is.


Daylight Beyond the Door (North Adams, MA)

cement floor before white garage door surrounded by brightly illuminated windows

A bay door in Building 5 at MASS MoCA. North Adams, Massachusetts.

The door was not part of the mill building’s original design; I believe this is the one they put in for Büchel’s failed exhibit. Less light coming in there, but the entrance way provides a wider ingress available for the often large objects displayed in this football field sized art gallery at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.
