Contemporary Art in Boston: Exploring The Linde Family Wing at the MFA

I finally had the chance to go see the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. I’ve got one word for you: go.

Contemporary Art in Boston: The Smart & Witty Work of Annette Lemieux

Contemporary art is becoming all the rage (finally!) in Massachusetts. Sebastian Smee’s article in the Boston Globe, “Contemporary Art All the Rage Across Region,” (September 18, 2011) points out how MassMOCA, the ICA, and now the MFA are all giving contemporary art its due, and even The Clark Art Institute is getting into the act.
