Lianghong Feng Exhibition to Open Independent Art Projects in North Adams, Mass., 6/26
CYNTHIA-REEVES has announced the opening of Independent Art Projects, a 2,500 square foot, multi-purpose project space in North Adams, Massachusetts. Newly renovated, the space is part of the art complex at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Arts (MASS MoCA) and its economic and commercial development program. Under the collaborative title of Independent Art Projects, this inaugural exhibition space is spearheaded by the contemporary art dealers, Cynthia Reeves and Leslie Ferrin, and is located at 1315 MASS MoCA Way, in the historic 19th century mill facing MASS MoCA. With over 100 feet in length of open exhibition space, the gallery has the solid feel that marks all of the museum's 19th-century mill buildings, featuring exposed timbers, high ceilings, large windows and rustic brick.Independent Art Projects contribute to the overall expansion and innovative programming at the museum around contemporary art, site-based installations, performance, and world-class cultural events.
Cynthia Reeves, the gallery's director, notes: "We couldn't be more pleased with this fit. MASS MoCA is a dynamic institution with the warmest and most collaborative team, all working together to make their campus an epicenter for contemporary art in New England. Leslie Ferrin and I are delighted to be part of this dialog around contemporary art, each of us bringing our distinctive, international program to this wonderful site."
Reeves continued to say that the gallery had been looking for opportunities to amplify its program around two-dimensional work, and more specifically around painting, photography, video and works on paper. "The MASS MoCA location affords a signature platform for these artists, and is a fitting complement to the gallery's public art forum around sculpture and site-based installations that already include projects in New York, Newport Beach, Seattle, Philadelphia, Dallas, Houston and Macau."
