About the Exhibition

The MCA’s Emerge group consists of donors who support the museum’s acquisition and education programs. Every year, this group selects and collectively funds the purchase of one major work by an artist not currently represented in the MCA Collection.

Emerge members cast their final votes in April 2024 to determine which artwork will be added to the MCA Collection.


About the Artists

This year, in collaboration with the MCA curatorial team, Emerge members proposed works by Selva Aparicio (b. 1987, Barcelona; lives in Chicago, IL), Ilit Azoulay (b. 1972, Tel Aviv; lives in Berlin), and Amir Fallah (b. 1979, Tehran, Iran; lives in Los Angeles) for consideration. Works by Amir Fallah and Selva Aparicio will be on display at the museum from April 20 to April 28, 2024.
