Curator Tour: Phantom Limb
Tuesday, June 26, noon
Meet by the Visitor Service Desk on the second floor
Visitors are invited to walk through the Phantom Limb: Approaches to Painting Today exhibition with Michael Darling, MCA James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator, and learn about the criteria and ideas that guided their selection of artists and artworks.
Phantom Limb showcases the evolution of contemporary painting from its modern gestural roots to the intersection of the machine and the hand-made, which is influencing many of the boldest young painters today. Primarily based on the MCA’s own collection, and augmented with works from the Chicago community, the exhibition maps a historical skepticism about painting.
