"Explode Every Day: An Inquiry into the Phenomena of Wonder." Twenty-three artists work in a wide range of media to explore perception, time and the cosmos to provoke viewers into their own state of wonder.

"Alex Da Corte: Free Roses," on view now. Provocative, puzzling, and visually seductive, in his first museum survey Alex Da Corte's neon-bright, exuberant works merge the languages of abstraction and modern design with banal, off-brand items, ranging from shampoo to soda to tchotchkes and household cleaning supplies.

"Sarah Crowner: Beetle in the Leaves," on view now. Crowner's exhibition at MASS MoCA — her first solo exhibition in a U.S. museum — features both existing paintings and major tile works designed and fabricated for the show.

"Federico Uribe: Here Comes the Sun" on view now. The works of Colombian-born, Miami-based artist Uribe, whose magical, colorful sculptural menagerie of animals — crafted out of leather bags, bullets, shoelaces and color pencils — can raise one's spirits, even though some of the imagery is fierce.

"Nick Cave: Kaleidoscopic Playground" on view now. Cave converts the Kidspace ArtBar into a veritable Kaleidoscopic Playground — a participatory art-making lab that invites visitors to explore their senses, emotions, and self.

"The Space Between": On view now. The Space Between disperses installations by seven artists in interstitial or transitional spaces throughout the campus and beyond to investigate ways to actively inhabit this state of "just passing through."

"Richard Nonas: The Man in the Empty Space," on view now. In one of his most ambitious projects to date, the artist's quietly powerful sculpture will occupy and transform MASS MoCA's Building 5, the museum's signature gallery, nearly a football field in length.

"Anselm Kiefer": On view seasonally, May through November. The long-term exhibition includes Étroits sont les Vaisseaux (Narrow are the Vessels) (2002), an 82-foot long, undulating wave-like sculpture made of cast concrete, exposed rebar, and lead.

"Sol Lewitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective," on view now. LeWitt — who stressed the idea behind his work over its execution — is widely regarded as one of the leading exponents of Minimalism and Conceptual Art, and is known primarily for his deceptively simple geometric structures and architecturally scaled wall drawings.

"Franz West: Les Pmmes d'Adam," on view seasonally, May through November. A monumental outdoor sculptural ensemble on extended loan from the Hall Art Foundation that is infused with humor and a particular delight in visual and linguistic puns.

"Barbara Takenaga: Nebraska," on view now. Takenaga creates a new work for a wall in the Hunter Hallway at MASS MoCA. Known for her small, labor-intensive, exuberant abstractions composed of matrix-like swirling patterns of dots, here Takenaga translates her meticulous handcrafted easel-sized work to wallpaper.

"Ran Hwang: Untethered," on view now. Using thousands upon thousands of buttons and pins, Korean artist Hwang installed "Untethered," a 140-foot-long sculpture featuring 14 birds, including six phoenixes.

"Michael Oatman: All Utopias Fell," on view seasonally, May through November. A project in three parts: The Shining, The Library of the Sun, and Codex Solis.

"Natalie Jeremijenko: Tree Logic," on view now. In Tree Logic, the art of the piece is not found in its condition at any single point in time, but in the change of the trees over time. When inverted, the six trees in this experiment still grow away from the earth and towards the sun.

"Don Gummer: Primary Separation," on view now. The sculpture consists of a massive granite boulder, 12 feet long by 6 feet tall, sawed in half.

"Stephen Vitiello: All Those Vanished Engines," on view now. Starting with the inherent resonance of the pipes and metal drums in the Mass MoCA Boiler House, Vitiello composed a layered sound installation that can be explored throughout the building.

"Christina Kubisch: Clocktower Project," on view now. The bells and beautiful brass clockworks share the tower with solar panels, electronic sound system, and a computer with Kubisch's unique program on its flash disc.
