Meeting at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago | Link to Register: https://www.artencounter.org/winter-series
Join us for our Winter Series this January and February! During the coldest time of year, stay warm in the comfort of your own home and meet us on Zoom to investigate work by recently recognized female artists from the twentieth century. Then, in February, join us in person to explore two exhibits featuring artists from different regions in the Americas, focusing first on women artists from South America and the Caribbean at the DePaul Museum and then on artists from the Caribbean diaspora at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
Our last session of Winter Series will explore the MCA’s exhibition featuring work by artists of the Caribbean diaspora. The demise of the Eastern Block brought cultural changes with an expanded global cultural awareness. Dialogues around identity, especially by those who have suffered systemic oppression, were featured front and center in cultural debates. The forces of this pivotal decade also had a major effect on the production, circulation, and presentation of art from the Caribbean and, in turn, many Caribbean artists impacted artists in the United States. We will explore selected works in this major group exhibition, the first American museum show envisioning a new approach to contemporary art in the Caribbean diaspora.
