Open Dialogue: Migration & Museums


In partnership with the Chicago Community Trust and the citywide On the Table event, this open dialogue invites cultural thinkers and visitors to consider the ways that artists migrate through systems, borders, and geopolitical lines. Invited participants include Xóchitl Bada, associate professor of the Latin American and Latinos Studies Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago; Cesareo Moreno, Chief Curator from the National Museum of Mexican Art; and Aram Han Sifuentes, an artist who uses her work to speak to topics of institutions and migrant communities.

Programs in the Commons are coauthored and designed by Chicago community groups and the MCA’s Partnerships and Engagement Liaison Gibran Villalobos.
