THE MFA’S NEW LINDE FAMILY WING STRIVES TO ENTER THE CONTEMPORARY CONVERSATION

Over 200 contemporary works will be featured in the new wing and surrounding spaces. In one particularly arresting instance, a flashing chandelier is suspended from the ceiling, both a functional object and a piece of art. A section of the floor vibrates and resonates with the low frequency sound of bubbles escaping from massive ice flows. If nothing else, the MFA deserves credit for its curatorial creativity.
