Curator Tour: Duro Olowu: Seeing Chicago


Join Naomi Beckwith, MCA Manilow Senior Curator for a tour of Duro Olowu: Seeing Chicago, an exhibition in which designer Duro Olowu turns his cosmopolitan eye to Chicago.

Drawing from the city’s public and private art collections including works in the MCA’s collection, Olowu curates a show that reimagines relationships between artists and objects across time, media, and geography. Moving away from traditional exhibition formats, Olowu combines photographs, paintings, sculptures, and films in dense and textural scenes that incorporate his own work.

Live interpretation events are organized by Meagan Burger, Manager of Adult Learning Programs.
