Message to our folks

 A little familial plug for a really wonderful exhibition at the MCA that my sister curated. The artist is Rashid Johnson and the name of the exhibition is Message to Our Folks. Rashid lives in New York now but is from Chicago and went to school at Columbia College and SAIC. His work includes photography, sculpture, installation, and painting. I absolutely love the way he repeats certain symbols, materials, motifs, etc. The show is up until August 5th, 2012- Check it out!

Luc Tuymans @ MCA

I was finally able to check out the Luc Tuymans exhibition at the MCA before it closed in early January. My sister worked on the show so I had heard a little about it but not much. I loved how his paintings looked in person and seeing his room full of inspiration and source materials was so interesting! The MCA store is selling small posters of the Rabbit painting shown above, I might have to pick one up:)
