About the Event

MCA Members enjoy first-look access of the MCA’s newest exhibitions alongside curators, artists, and fellow art enthusiasts. Pritzker Director Madeleine Grynsztejn and the MCA invite you and a guest to attend the Members’ Preview for Forecast Form: Art in the Caribbean Diaspora, 1990s–Today. Join us for complimentary light fare and refreshments while being among the first to view this major group exhibition, the first in the United States to envision a new approach to contemporary art in the Caribbean diaspora.

Forecast Form features the works of 37 emerging and established artists whose practices reach beyond borders and foregrounds the dynamic artistic forms connected to the region. This critical show challenges traditional assumptions of Caribbean culture and its representation, while revealing new modes of thinking about identity and place.
