Public Programs

SPARK! - Tours for Individuals with Alzheimer’s and Dementia

SPARK! is a series of programs specifically designed to make BMoCA’s art exhibitions accessible for visitors with early-stage Alzheimer’s or dementia and their caregivers.

BMoCA + AIA Colorado - North Section

BMoCA’s new partnership with the American Institute of Architects Colorado – North Section seeks to promote and inspire thoughtful conversations about urbanism, sustainability, and design in Boulder. This program will focus on planning and urban development, use of public space, and the value of design to fit community needs. We plan to explore the powerful intersection between art, architecture, and the community through lectures, workshops, and installations. Through this program, architects, artists, and thinkers will consider growth, neighborhood identity, diversity, sustainability, and affordability.

This October, we are excited to present a lecture by Christopher Hawthorne, a leading voice in architecture, urbanism, and design. Hawthorne is Chief Design Officer for the City of Los Angeles (appointed by Mayor Eric Garcetti), a Professor of the Practice at Occidental College, and a former architectural critic for the L.A. Times. With an emphasis on the public, Christopher Hawthorne believes that the value of “good design” is measured by its ability to meet the needs of the entire community- at BMoCA we share this sentiment, and hope that by bringing this conversation to the public we can impact our community. This lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with guests Shannon Cox Baker, Development Manager at Boulder Housing Partners; Scott Holton, Principal at Element Properties and former Commissioner of the Boulder Housing Authority; and Jim Robertson, Director of Planning, Housing, and Sustainability for the City of Boulder. The panel will be moderated by Richard Epstein, Principal at re:architecture and former President of AIA Colorado – North Section.



Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA) presents the 6th annual MediaLive, a new media festival bringing together art, technology, and digital culture. MediaLive consists of a week of live performances, media installations, workshops, and events by contemporary artists and thinkers working internationally in new media. MediaLive also serves as the Arts Track for Boulder Startup Week, an event that brings together technologists from across the US.

In addition to programming every evening throughout the week, the festival’s installations will be available for exploration at the museum daily from 11am-5pm. All events are free and open to the public.

This year, the festival will center on the theme Interdependence, exposing and embracing our reciprocal relationships with the environment, nonhuman organisms, and each other, while investigating technology’s role in these reliances. Join us for MediaLive 2018 to consider the messy networks we all inhabit, both natural and computational.

Some of the works featured in this year’s festival include:
• NeuroSpeculative AfroFeminism, an award-winning virtual reality experience by Hyphen-Labs, an international collective of women of color, inspired by the lack of multidimensional representations of Black women in technology.
• Internet Aerobics, a performance-meets-all-levels aerobics class by San Francisco-based artist Liat Berdugo, where audience members will use blue ethernet cables as props and learn physical gestures related to internet infrastructure.
• Kitty AI, an installation by Turkish artist Pinar Yoldas that speculates about the first AI (Artificial Intelligence) political leader who takes the form of an adorable virtual cat.
• An immersive sensory performance by the band Sound of Ceres, originally from Fort Collins, CO and now based in New York City, who will be playing alongside members of the Boulder Symphony.
