About This Event

Join artists, scholars, and policymakers in a two-day symposium centered around ideas of ecofeminism, architecture, and water. These guiding topics are at the forefront of thinking and work presented by artists at the MCA. Knowing that each of these areas touches all of our individual lives, voices in this symposium help us understand how these urgencies are interconnected, and how creativity helps us imagine a future around devastating situations.

The symposium includes an afternoon and an early evening program on each day. Before each program, Chicago’s own Lampo presents a musical piece inspired by the program topic.

This public program at the MCA is organized by Gibran Villalobos, Assistant Curator, with the Performance and Public Practice team.
