Puppetmasters

MASS MoCA is featuring another critically acclaimed tabletop puppetry show, Disfarmer on May 8th & 9th. American portrait photographer Mike Disfarmer (1884-1959) operated a photography studio in Heber Springs, Arkansas, where for years locals and tourists lined up to have their picture made. This show explores the contradictions in the life of this American artist known for his documentation of a way of life that has pretty much vanished. The New York Times called Disfarmer, “a quiet tour de force” while the Washington Post put Disfarmer at the top of their “Best Of” list for 2009. How lucky we are that MASS MoCA brings such compelling and edgy work to our little bucolic world!
