DESCRIPTION

MCA: Curator Tour: Color Bind: The MCA Collection in Black and White: Naomi Beckwith

January 15, 2013, 12pm

Free for Illinois residents

Accompany Naomi Beckwith, the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Marilyn and Larry Fields Curator, through Color Bind: The MCA Collection in Black and White  and learn about the criteria and ideas that guided her selections of artists and artworks.  Realize that the terms “black” and “white” can be used literally, formally, and metaphorically in art, and that formal considerations are often rooted in social issues.

 

FREE with museum admission. Curator tour groups meet by the Visitor Service Desk on the second floor.
