From Friday 5th July, artists Mike Hewson and Agatha Goth-Snape will work together to transform the front of the Museum of Contemporary Art into a huge work of art, treating the scaffold covering as a gigantic canvas. The project will follow the trending creation of public spaces, so popular among artists today. Both graphic and text-based art will be combined to celebrate the personal styles of Hewson and Gothe-Snape; whilst Hewson’s art uses architectural forms as a point of departure, Gothe-Snape explores human relationships within her work. Opening hours and exhibitions will continue as normal, but with an incredible external exhibition to welcome visitors to the building.
The incredible artwork follows the recent expansion of the building itself, transformed in March 1012 to include even more galleries in addition to a whole floor reserved for the MCA’s own collection. The six-storey canvas further defines the museum as an ever-changing and modern celebration of contemporary art.
