  1. Long Two works of art are seen installed in a corner of a gallery in a portrait-style view. On the left, leaning up against the wall, is photo (about the size of a refrigerator) of a figure embracing a white form. The white form, cocoonish in shape, appears to be made of wrapped fabric and is taller than the human embracing it, obscuring the person's head. Slightly taller, on the right wall, a grey man's suit that seems to be made of felt, hangs from a wooden hanger with the pant legs a few inches from the ground. A grey wall label is installed on the wall about face-level midway between the photo and the suit.

About

With the launch of this website, the MCA has created a platform for archiving and publishing images and stories from our 50-year history. Though many exhibition pages currently lack descriptions or illustrations, we’re committed to a program of ongoing research that will fill in the blanks over time. If you have information about past MCA exhibitions to share, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
