Members’ Preview: Andrea Bowers

Pritzker Director Madeleine Grynsztejn and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago invite you and a guest to attend the Members’ Preview for Andrea Bowers. MCA Members enjoy exclusive, first-look access to view Andrea Bowers alongside curators, artists, and fellow art enthusiasts. Join us for complimentary light fare and refreshments while being among the first to view the MCA’s newest exhibition.


View artworks that span more than twenty years of Andrea Bowers (American, b. 1965) work, including video, colored pencil illustration, and installation art. This major retrospective—the artist’s first—demonstrates how Bowers speaks directly to pressing national issues. Her work combines an artistic practice with activism and advocacy, giving voice to stories rarely seen or heard.
