What’s on

“Forecast Form: Art in the Caribbean Diaspora, 1990s–Today”

  • Contemporary art

What does “Caribbean art” look like? This new group exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art takes a diasporic approach to answering that question, using weather—and all its changeability and unpredictability—as a metaphor for exploring artistic practices and identity-making within Caribbean art communities across the world. With the tumultuous geopolitical climate of the 1990s as its backdrop, the exhibit highlights work from 37 international artists; it’s also the first major MCA exhibition to presented in both Spanish and English.

  • Art and design

The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago is collaborating with Mike “Orie” Mosley, founder and creative director of Afrotrak, to create an immersive art experience. The event will highlight works from various black artists in Chicago and also include a live DJ set, digital art exhibits and an artist-led session by Tonika Johnson, creator of the Folded Map project.
