Join us for a conversation in conjunction with our Not Just Another Pretty Face exhibition and the Museum of Contemporary Art’s blkHaUS Studios project, The Commons Collection.
blkHaUS brings together Chicago community members, local museums, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, through thoughtfully constructed interactive experiences around collecting. They collate and assess patterns of collecting and invite audiences to share their personal objects and narratives around their modular artwork.
We are inviting members from our Hyde Park Art Center community to come and share the items they collect and be photographed to be included in the MCA’s Commons Collection and engage in conversation. Designers and artist Norman Teague and Folayemi Wilson of blkHaUS studio will join Hyde Park Art Center staff , January Arnall of the MCA, and collector Patric McCoy of Diasporal Rhythms for a conversation on collecting, institutions and the two respective exhibitions, with our Winter Community Dinner to follow.
Free and open to the public.
