Mobius first began hosting ArtRages, nearly 20 years ago. Conceived as a blow-out art party showcasing the work of the Mobius Artists Group and other talented local experimental artists, and with music by local bands, ArtRages has become a feature on the benefit scene, the performance art circuit, and a great place to catch current and up and coming local stars. The party has also been a crucial fund-raiser for Boston’s oldest enduring alternative art organization, Mobius.

ArtRages recently was awarded the second place prize for an Exhibition of Time Based Art Boston-area (Film, Video, and Performance) from AICA/New England (Association Internationale des Critiques d'art, the International Association of Art Critics).
