REDEFINING SPACE FOR ART
CHINATI AND MASS MOCA
5 November 2017
Sunday, 1:30 to 3:30 pm (Check-In Beginning at 1:00 pm)
Nasher Hall, Nasher Sculpture Center
Join the Dallas Architecture Forum for an afternoon focused on how the Chinati Foundation and
MASS MoCA, two highly acclaimed centers for contemporary art, have repurposed abandoned
spaces to create innovative and internationally recognized centers for the display of art. These
museums have created opportunities for visitors to interact with art - in unusual and unique
settings - in dramatic yet intimate ways.
The Forum's 2017 Design Symposium will present Chinati Director Jenny Moore and MASS MoCA
Director Joseph Thompson in compelling conversation as they each overview their organizations.
They'll discuss how their sites were repurposed for the display of art, with emphasis on how the size
of their venues provide opportunities to present art at a scale and scope not possible in most
conventional art museums. Ms. Moore and Mr. Thompson will also discuss highlights of the
significant collections on display at their museums. Ms. Moore will overview the new master plan
recently completed for Chinati, while Mr. Thompson will highlight the major MASS MoCA campus
expansion that opened this year.
Following the presentations by Ms. Moore and Mr. Thompson, there will be a Panel Discussion
with our two speakers moderated by Jeremy Strick, Director of the Nasher Sculpture Center.
Attendees will also be able to ask questions of the panelists toward the conclusion of this time.
