Theater Program at 7:30 (space is limited)
Free to MCA members (with valid membership card)

The Language of Less (Then and Now) is inspired by the MCA Chicago’s rich holdings of Minimalist and post-Minimalist work from the 1960s and 1970s. The exhibition is divided into two distinct parts, one devoted to a fresh installation of this historical material (featuring Donald Judd, Carol Andre, Richard Serra, and Sol LeWitt), and a second showcasing five contemporary artists (Leonor Antunes, Carol Bove, Jason Dodge, Gedi Sibony, and Oscar Tuazon) who are working within the stylistic language of their forebears, albeit with entirely new content and concerns.
