About

Pritzker Director Madeleine Grynsztejn and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago invite you and a guest to attend the Members’ Preview for Duro Olowu: Seeing Chicago. Enjoy complimentary snacks and a cash bar while being among the first to view the MCA’s newest exhibition.

Nigerian-born British designer Duro Olowu is internationally recognized for his womens wear label launched in 2004. Characterized by unique fabrics, evocative patterns, and impeccable construction, the London-based designer’s garments are informed by his international background and curator’s eye. Olowu’s multinational and multicultural viewpoint has translated into wildly popular platforms and projects from his dynamic Instagram account to his revelatory curatorial projects in London and New York.

Reserve your complimentary tickets by Friday, February 21.
