MFA Art Practice is proud to present CARE PACKAGE, a printable PDF exhibition of work from our alumni to kick off our tenth summer. Featuring Isa Wang ’19, Lindsay Kane ‘18, Ben Quesnel ‘17, Kevin Townsend ‘16, Jason Mena ‘19 and TANGA!intl (Rachel Chick ‘14, Andrew Prieto ‘14 and Alfredo Travieso ‘14)

Summer 2020 is a special one for MFA Art Practice. It’s our 10th anniversary! It’s an occasion to celebrate the extraordinary artists that have made this program so special over the past decade as we look forward to many more years to come.

It’s also the first (and we do hope last) time our intensive summer programming will take place entirely online. Along with our global community, we’ve had to make some changes to the way we’re used to doing things. As we embark today in this new format, we’re proud of the workout faculty and staff has put in to ensure that while this summer may be a bit different, it will be every bit the exciting, transformative, and productively disorienting experience it’s always been.

To mark the occasion, we wanted to do something that felt truly, uniquely, Art Practice. Our community has always valued collaboration and participation as innovation, so we asked a few of our Alumni to contribute works to this PDF exhibition that “viewers” can print out and engage within various ways to make
them their own. So we invite you to:

MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists program, selected artists receive private studio space on MASS MoCA’s campus, newly renovated housing, free access to the museum’s galleries throughout the residency, shared use of printmaking and weaving equipment, optional financial and business coaching from Assets for Artists staff, and a daily group meal.
