Uncovered: Recent Acquisitions from the Artists’ Books Collection


Uncovered presents recent acquisitions from the MCA’s renowned Artists’ Books holdings, which includes artists’ books, periodicals, records, stamps, postcards, and T-shirts. On view are works by international, national, and Chicago-based artists, including Felipe Ehrenberg, Nan Goldin, Damien Hirst, Ed Ruscha, Lorna Simpson, Stephanie Brooks, Jason Peot, Sally Alatalo, and Karen Reimer. Also presented for the first time is 8.5 x 11, a project coordinated by Gabriel Fowler, for which 20 local artists created 8 1/2 x 11–inch works.

The exhibition is curated by Curator Lynne Warren and Curatorial Coordinator Tricia Van Eck.
