DESCRIPTION

Coffee, conversation and great artworks...what better way to start a Saturday morning? Experience it for yourself as you look carefully at works on view in the MCA's galleries. Then make connections to other artworks, histories and ideas as you take part in a relaxed, facilitated discussion that helps you think through the art of our time. This December, ask  what is conceptual art. Is it scary? Intimidating? Sometimes, but it doesn’t need to be. Conceptual art is all about ideas, both big and small. With Brooklyn-based conceptual artist, Dave McKenzie, explore how artists such as IAIN BAXTER& and Ron Terada use art as a vehicle to convey these ideas.
