The Temporary Autonomous Museum of Contemporary Art Minneapolis

Opening Friday: With the Minneapolis Institute of Arts celebrating its centennial and Walker Art Center its 75th anniversary, the Twin Cities art scene is clearly having a geriatric moment. So, when better to launch a new Museum of Contemporary Art? The new MCA will be a “Temporary Autonomous” affair as its official moniker makes clear. On view at Bockley Gallery in south Minneapolis for just a few weeks, the “museum” is in fact just an exhibition of recent narrative paintings, drawings, sculpture and quilted wall hangings by seven artists: Lauren Roche, Dietrich Sieling, Andrew Mazorol, Tynan Kerr, Lindsay Rhyner, Rachel Blomgren and Ryan Fontaine, who also helped organize the show. Sieling’s 8-foot-wide drawing on plywood, “Shirt Off Geoff, Dietrich at the Ocean Wearing Oreo Shirt,” is shown here. (Opening reception 6-9 p.m. Fri., free. Bockley Gallery, 2123 W. 21st St., Mpls. 612-377-4669 or
