Originally installed in association with NL: A Season of Dutch Arts in the Berkshires, Dutch artist and designer Dré Wapenaar's multi-colored Pavilion provides a shady respite for daytime visitors Located in the center of the 14-acre MASS MoCA complex, in our Courtyard C, the outdoor social sculpture of overlapping canopies has become home to many MASS MoCA events,performances and concerts.

The installation marks Wapenaar's second visit to North Adams. In 2004, as part of The Interventionists, he exhibited his Buckminster Fuller-inspired Birthing Tent (2003) and his Death Bivouac(2002). His inhabitable artworks use the tent form to suggest new social arrangements. The installation is closed in the winter.

NL: A Season of Dutch Arts in the Berkshireswas coordinated by the Department of Press and Cultural Affairs at the Consulate General of The Netherlands in New York and Service Centre for International Cultural Activities (SICA) in Amsterdam. Initial funding for NL was provided by The Netherlands Culture Fund through SICA. Additional funding has been provided by the Fund for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture and the Mondriaan Foundation.
