About Mildred’s Lane and The Mildred Complex(ity)
“What is it that we need to learn in the 21st century?” J. Morgan Puett of Mildred’s Lane and the Mildred Complex(ity) poses this question to visitors of MoMA Studio in a series of events and a workshop space. Based in northeastern Pennsylvania, Mildred’s Lane is a working-living-researching environment made up of a community of artists interested in fostering new modes of social engagement with every aspect of life. From discussions to meals, interactions at MoMA Studio focus on our relations with each other and our environments, systems of labor, and aspects of holistic living as they relate to contemporary culture. Gleaning from her sense of aesthetics and design, Puett’s installation and living archive invites visitors to explore inventive forms of domesticity, tactile qualities related to textiles, and the natural states of food—gathered from Fritz Haeg’s Domestic Integrity Field Part A-1, also a part of MoMA Studio—while fellow artists invite the public to engage in their practice on frequent, impromptu visits.
