About Museum Town:

2019. 76 m. Jennifer Trainer. The Office/Kino Lorber. US. English. NR.

Today, MASS MoCA is the largest museum for contemporary art in the world…but just three decades ago, its vast brick buildings were the abandoned relics of a shuttered factory. This documentary tells how such a wildly improbable transformation came to be. Museum Town also looks at the artistic process itself—not only how museums work but also how artists create—tracking celebrated artist Nick Cave as he builds the monumental installation “Until,” a reflection on gun violence, race, and the American Dream. In addition to Nick Cave, the documentary features appearances by artists James Turrell, Laurie Anderson, and David Byrne, with original music and soundtrack by John Stirratt of Wilco and songs by Talking Heads, Sharon Jones, Big Thief, Wilco, and Moses Sumney, among others.

We’re proud to have supported this film through fiscal sponsorship at the Jacob Burns Film Center, an artist support program currently offered through Creative Culture.
