The programme to mark the 50th anniversary of Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art makes a bold declaration that art and culture have the power to change our perceptions of the world. This three-part show, drawn from the MCA collection, focuses on this relationship between artist and viewer, with works from many generations arranged thematically, from Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg to Jonathas de Andrade.
We are Here runs 19 August – 1 April. For more information: www.mcachicago.org
