Darren Waterston's "Filthy Lucre" At MASS MoCA

    

  Painter Darren Waterston's installation Filthy Lucre is the centerpiece of Uncertain Beauty, his new exhibition at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA (on view through January 2015).

A soundscape featuring voice and cello composed by the New York-based trio BETTY can be heard intermittently through the space, punctuating the silence with hauntingly beautiful reverberations.
