December 4-10, 2016
Recurring daily

This fall, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), presents #mfaNOW, a season celebrating contemporary art and artists, with a variety of exhibitions, events and programs. Exhibitions include UH-OH: Frances Stark 1991–2015Christian Marclay: The Clock and Terry Winters: The Structure of Things. Two installations, Political Intent and Beyond Limits, present key works and recent acquisitions from the MFA's collection. 

On four occasions, the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art will stay open for free "mfaNOW Overnight" parties, connecting visitors to art, culture and community in new and unexpected ways. In addition to offering a rare opportunity to see all 24 hours of Marclay's video collage The Clock, the all-night parties will transform the spaces both inside and outside the building—with food trucks and lawn games, live music and DJs, artist demonstrations, performance art and futuristic films. Visitors can make art, embark on a late-night run around the Museum's campus, stargaze in the courtyard or dance all night. Activities will continue into the morning, with coffee and conversation, yoga sessions, and art making and story hour for kids in the galleries.

On social media, #mfaNOW will encourage fans and followers to share their experiences and get the word out about what's happening in real time—from film and theater festivals to panel discussions and lectures with leading artists, activists and change-makers.
