Mass MOCA's Community Initiatives Including Kim Faler's Support Featured in The New York Times
Kim Faler’s (Sculpture ’08) efforts to include more artists in Mass MOCA’s community initiatives is included in The New York Times’ recent feature of the museum. Specifically, Faler convinced Mass MOCA to hire artists, including herself, to teach other artists about financial topics in their Assets for Artists program. This shift helps artists gain experience through their peers’ knowledge, while providing another avenue for Mass MOCA to support artists by providing professional opportunities beyond exhibitions.
Faler is also included in Mass MCOA’s group exhibition “Kissing Through the Curtain” – ten artists explore what gets lost and gained in the act of translation. Faler’s “Double Bubble” features 20 portraits made from chewing gum, including a soundscape of of people chewing gum and blowing bubbles.
