About the Event

In 2022, we will continue this tradition as we celebrate renowned artist Nick Cave and the highly anticipated debut performance of The Color Is at the DuSable Museum of African American History Roundhouse. Presented on the occasion of the MCA exhibition Nick Cave: Forothermore, The Color Is features original fashion design, dance choreography, and a one-night performance by legendary Labelle.

Proceeds from this event will support the MCA’s collaborative efforts to provide a platform for living artists, in pursuit of a creative and diverse future.
