Light Therapy at the Museum of Contemporary Art is perfect for these cold, dark days. The exhibition, which is the institution’s second Art in Use project, simulates a bright, sunny day. This cultural experience might also be curative: exposure to light chases away Seasonal Affective Disorder, helps you conquer jet lag, and generally lifts your mood. What’s more, there are no known side effects.
Drinks are allowed and conversation encouraged, making this not only the brightest but possibly the most social art exhibition on view. That’s the idea: Slovenian artist Apolonija Šušteršič is preoccupied with how contemporary museums function as public spaces and “social healing devices.” MOCA considers this exhibition part of an ongoing exploration of how their institution might support well-being.
