The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art Commissioned New York based artist Cai Guo-Qiang to create a work expressing his view on the current state of global affairs. The result is Inopportune, a four stage installation, an eerie dream of dazzling lights and ghostly cars, tigers and arrows, explosions and stillness.

These images are of Stage One, the brilliant centerpiece of the show. Nine cars explode and flip in sequence with illuminations radiating like fireworks or comic book explosions. This is by far the most fresh and exciting work I've seen recently!

More pictures after the jump.
