Michael Oatman Crashes @ MASS MoCA

All Utopias Fell

We are so very psyched to see the latest upcoming project by Troy artist and RPI art professor Michael Oatman.

Why?

Well, because he’s a crazy man, that’s why…and, of course, we mean that in the very best possible way.

And we’re also pretty jazzed about the project because it’s far and away the most ambitious, over-the-top, insanely intense installation that Oatman’s ever created – and trust us, that’s really saying something.

“All Utopias Fell” is a three-part, multimedia installation. It’s also a 1970s-era DIY satellite concocted from a vintage Airstream that just happens to have crash-landed in North Adams, Mass.

That’s right, it’s going to be on exhibit at the very prestigious MASS MoCA in North Adams.

And, oh yeah, did we happen to mention that the whole thing is waaay up in the air? How cool is that?

The only thing that we don’t like about it is that we have to wait til the end of July to see the finished project. (We did, however, get a pre-launch, work-in-progress guided tour by the artist back in the fall, and, yeah, this is definitely gonna be worth the wait.)
