Event Navigation

The Museum of Capitalism is an institution dedicated to educating present and future generations about the history, philosophy, and legacy of capitalism through exhibitions, research, and publications; through collecting and preserving material evidence, art, and artifacts of capitalism; and through varied public programming. The museum’s programs result from collaborations between researchers, curators, artists, designers, filmmakers, writers, economists, historians, scientists, and non-specialists from all walks of life, including those with direct experience in capitalism. The museum opened its inaugural exhibition in Oakland in 2017 with a series of multimedia installations created by a diverse network of artists, scholars, and ordinary citizens exploring the historical phenomenon of capitalism and its intersections with themes like race, class, and environment in the United States.

The SMFA/Tufts exhibition will feature exhibits, artworks, and artifacts created and collected by the following artists: Jordan Bennett, Ben Bigelow, Center for Tactical Magic, Jennifer Dalton, Sharon Daniel, Blake Fall-Conroy, FICTILIS, Marc Fischer, Kate Haug, Kelly Jazvac, Michael Mandiberg, James McAnally, Valeria Mogilevich, Claire Pentecost, Tim Portlock, Jesse Sugarmann, Evan Desmond Yee, and Igor Vamos, alongside new commissions by Maia Chao and Michelle de la Vega.
