On the opening weekend of West by Midwest, join us for a conversation between groundbreaking conceptual artist Al Ruppersberg and contemporary artist Amanda Ross-Ho. Ross-Ho and Ruppersberg’s collaborative artwork is featured in the exhibition and grounds a discussion exploring their individual practices as well as the trajectories of their lives and careers spanning the Midwest to the West Coast.

MCA Talks highlight cutting-edge thinking and contemporary art practices across discipline and are organized by Curator of Public Programs January Parkos Arnall and Assistant Curator of Public Programs Christy LeMaster.


The Richard and Mary L. Gray Lectures are made possible through a generous gift to the Chicago Contemporary Campaign.
