Over the past five years, the plaza in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art has played host to a gigantic mannequin head, a spinning neon sign and a telephone handset wrapped around an oversized femur. This summer, a full-scale cement mixer will be installed in front of the popular art museum, marking the fifth entry in the MCA's Plaza Project series, which seeks to bring art outside of the galleries and into a public space. This year's display—entitled "Mix (Americana)"—is the work of Brazilian artist Alexandre da Cunha, who is known for repurposing existing items and incorporating them into his piecesVisitors and passersby will be able to experience the outdoor installation when it opens in July.
