Featuring the premiere of a new film and other new works, Jill Magid’s Tender: Balance at the Renaissance Society thinks about the circulation of pennies, against the backdrop of the pandemic, and measures of absence and loss. With dimensions that both intimate and observant of larger systems around us, this exhibition both parallels and builds on a monumental but nearly invisible public artwork that Magid began in New York in fall 2020. On the exhibition’s opening day, the artist joins curator Karsten Lund to discuss Tender: Balance and the project’s various manifestations, in Chicago and beyond.

Live captioning will be available for this event.

Organized in conjunction with EXPO Chicago.
