The title of MASS MOCA’s exhibition from May 2016-April 2017, “Explode Every Day: An Inquiry into the Phenomena of Wonder”, co-curated by Denise Markonish and Sean Foley, is inspired by novelist Ray Bradbury’s idea “…you remain invested in your inner child by exploding every day. You don’t worry about the future, you don’t worry about the past—you just explode.” The exhibition includes new and existing works by 23 international artists, including RWU’s Murray McMillan, Associate Professor of Art, and his wife Megan, who teaches at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Their work, “In What Distant Sky” is featured on MASS MoCA’s website.

The exhibition includes six quilts Duffy created in 2015 and 2016, who writes of the work, “Quilts immediately bring to mind ideas of home, comfort and security. As heirlooms, they carry narratives that are otherwise forgotten. Bringing these two seemingly polarizing forms together allows me to highlight the costs borne by societies deeply invested in incarceration.
