This week, BMA Contemporary Art Curator Kristen Hileman gave an update on the renovation of the museum’s Contemporary Wing, which is scheduled to reopen November 18. Besides highlighting classics by the likes of Warhol and Rauschenberg, the revamped galleries will showcase work that’s more international, socially engaged, and, well, contemporary. Look for fantastic new pieces by Nari Ward—his piece, Nu Colossus, blew me away at MassMOCA last summer—Rikrit Tiravanija, and Turner Prize winner Susan Philipsz. One of the BMA’s recently acquired Morris Louis paintings will also go on display, along with work by Joyce Scott and Grace Hartigan. Speaking of local faves, Gaia will exhibit portraits of Remington residents from November to May 5. And artist Sarah Oppenheimer has installed an “architectural intervention” that reflects the project’s spirit of inclusion and innovation. More on that later. There will also be a new black box gallery, two interactive galleries, a Smartphone tour, and other elements that will make visiting the wing a more immersive and satisfying experience.
