Opening of Nari Ward: ‘Sub Mirage Lignum’ at MASS MoCA

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsMASS MoCA in North Adams, MA, opened two exhibitions last Saturday night. On the second floor of Building 4, Nari Ward made enormous installations for a show titled Sub Mirage Lignum, a hybrid zone made of mostly repurposed materials where the real and the imaginary are intermingled, forcing visitor to challenge the reality before them. Upstairs, two graduate students from the masters program at Williams College, Emily Leisz Carr and Oliver Wunsch (left with fellow Williams graduate student Lucie Steinberg), curated a show called Memery: Imitation, Memory and Internet Culture (through July 31) that features work made of words, pictures and videos found on the Internet.
