Trenton Doyle Hancock’s ‘Mind of The Mound’ Opens at MASS MoCA
The show's curator, Denise Markonish, with the artist.
Mind of the Mound: Critical Mass, the artist Trenton Doyle Hancock’s largest exhibition to date, opened in MASS MoCA’s Building 5 with a reception on Saturday, March 9. The exhibit is set up much like a board game, where the viewer is the pawn, venturing down a rainbow-colored path, landing inside “mounds,” coming upon drawings, paintings, sculpture and Doyle’s own extensive collection of toys from the 1970s and ‘80s. If you look closely, you’ll see that some of the toys are not mass-produced by Mattel or Milton Bradley but are actually Hancock’s own creations. Over the course of the exhibit, the artist will collaborate with musicians, singers, dancers and preachers to bring his vision more fully to life.
