Xu Bing’s Phoenix at MassMOCA
Coolest exhibit ever? Possibly. Perfect surprise on a last-minute trip to the museum? Yes.
“Chinese artist Xu Bing spent two years creating his newest work, Phoenix. The installation features two monumental birds fabricated entirely from materials harvested from construction sites in urban China, including demolition debris, steel beams, tools, and remnants of the daily lives of migrant laborers.”
