THE SHAPE OF THE FUTURE
MCA, Chicago - through april 5, 2020
The Shape of the Future features works from the MCA permanent collection that reckon with the dubious dream of a universal design language. Coinciding with the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial, the exhibition explores global modernism as a framework for utopia and speculative world making, marked by traces of labor, political fantasy, and cultural turmoil. Highlighting the histories and ideologies embedded in the built environment, these artists reveal the complexity—and at times absurdity—of the modernist project as a collection of disasters and reveries.
The exhibition is organized by Nina Wexelblatt, Curatorial Assistant. It is presented in the Cohen and Stone Family Galleries on the museum’s fourth floor.

RUBELL INAUGURAL EXHIBITION
The Rubell Museum, Florida
Drawn entirely from their expansive collection of over 7,200 works by more than 1,000 artists, the Inaugural Exhibitions of the Rubell Museum features defining and seminal works by artists whom the Rubells championed as they were first emerging (often becoming the first collectors to acquire their work) and those who had been overlooked.
