Filthy Lucre, a contemporary reimagining of Whistler’s famed Peacock Room, came together with help from a team of builders, artisans, and painters. In this panel discussion, artist Darren Waterston explores the intense and highly collaborative nine-month journey. Joined onstage by the project’s key collaborators—MASS MoCA curator Susan Cross and lead fabricator Derek Parker—Waterston shares a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Filthy Lucre, from the first models to the finished installation.
