mocad review in metro times


Oh, uh. Looks like the first luke-warm mocad review in metro times.
"...Meditations in an Emergency presents a few moments of real refinement and fragility. But the exhibit's also bewildering. If it's supposed to say something about the contemporary art scene — with a machine that plops out gooey sculpture, a video of flower petals trailing off a body like tears and a "plywood paradise" of cuddly creatures — it says that, in these tough times, artists have gone soft."

Mazzei did a nice job.

Great review. Well thought out and balanced. There are definetly highs and lows and the overall context of the exhibition is a little loose in the pants, but there will be better things to come from MOCAD.

It's also nice to see that someone is willing to offer a critical look at an inagural exhibition and very celebrated opening.
