DESCRIPTION

 To celebrate the unveiling of her MCA plaza project, artist Amanda Ross-Ho and Associate Curator Julie Rodrigues Widholm discuss the large-scale installation, THE CHARACTER AND SHAPE OF ILLUMINATED THINGS, and its inspirations. On view from July 23 – November 2013, the installation illustrates through a trio of objects—a cube, sphere, and female mannequin head—how to use light creatively. This exhibition is part of the MCA’s commitment to blurring the lines between the inside and outside of the museum, enlivening Chicago with contemporary art beyond the museum walls.
