The new address (75 Third Street) is above the Breen’s Bar where many previous showings by MOCA have occurred. In this dingy loft, previously used by a printing company, about 500 artists and viewers gathered between 7pm and 11pm expecting to witness a startling new show by the museum’s curator Tom Marioni. Instead, they were left staring at each other and a less than adequate quantity of bottled Fisher beer. By the time I arrived at 9 pm, the two turkeys and other delicacies placed near the entrance were nothing more than grisly carcasses and empty plates. Here are the sounds of the crowd at that event, an interview with Director Tom Marioni and his mother from Cincinnati, Ohio, and a long recording of the o...
