Darren Waterston's "Filthy Lucre" At MASS MoCA

Apr 17, 2014


  Painter Darren Waterston's installation Filthy Lucre is the centerpiece of Uncertain Beauty, his new exhibition at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA (on view through January 2015). It is a contemporary re-imagining of James McNeill Whistler's 1876 decorative masterpiece Harmony in Blue and Gold: The Peacock Room.

A soundscape featuring voice and cello composed by the New York-based trio BETTY can be heard intermittently through the space, punctuating the silence with hauntingly beautiful reverberations.

Darren's blog documents the creation of Flithy Lucre.
