Scottish artist Susan Philipsz, winner of the 2010 Turner Prize, shares the ideas and processes that generated We Shall Be All, a new sound installation that draws from Chicago’s political and labor history. Commissioned for the MCA Collection, it will be presented beginning February 26. Philipsz frames this new piece within the context of her previous work and describes her interest in the sculptural properties of sound and the power of songs. Recorded Tuesday, February 22, 2011, 6 pm.
