Annie Lennox Brings New Installation and Performance to MASS MoCA
Celebrated as one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time, Annie Lennox comes to MASS MoCA in North Adams this spring with Annie Lennox: ‘Now I Let You Go…’ , an installation of artifacts, found objects, and personal effects revealed within a large earthen mound. “We are surrounded by an infinity of objects from birth to the grave,” writes Lennox. “Over time our things become steeped with memory and nostalgia.”
An opening reception begins at 5:30pm on Saturday, May 25, to celebrate the exhibition (together with two new exhibitions, “Suffering from Realness” and “Cauleen Smith’s We Already Have What We Need.”
To launch her exhibition and to kick off a day-long celebration of MASS MoCA’s 20th anniversary on May 25, Lennox will step into the spotlight at the Hunter Center to share stories and perform songs in “An Afternoon of Conversation and Song with Annie Lennox,” a solo performance to benefit the Annie Lennox Foundation (supporting social justice work around the issue of global feminism) and MASS MoCA’s Fund for New Music (supporting new work by emerging musicians).
Tickets for the benefit performance, “An Afternoon of Conversation and Song with Annie Lennox,” are on sale now, priced at $100, $300 & $1,000.
