Few artists can claim to have committed to a work in progress for 47 years. As A Humument nears its half century an exhibition, Life’s Work, at MASS MoCA features an in depth study of Tom Phillips’ ever evolving treated novel and partners the Humument display with another longstanding altered book project by Johnny Carrera. Life’s Work is the most comprehensive exhibition of A Humument ever mounted and offers a rare opportunity to examine the work in its entirety.
For those of you not able to make it to North Adams please visit the newly revised gallery from March 23 at www.humument.com for an online version of the exhibit. Life’s Work continues at MASS MoCA until November 2013 www.massmoca.org
