    BMO Harris Bank Chicago Works: Faheem Majeed
    March 10 – August 16
    For Faheem Majeed’s first solo museum exhibition, he questions how space becomes place, and, further, how places can foster a sense of home and belonging. The MCA—a public institution and, by extension, a type of public space—becomes the armature for the artist’s investigation.

    Keren Cytter
    March 28 – October 4
    Keren Cytter plays with the conventions of narrative cinema to reveal or upend their unwritten rules. Her pared-down style of filmmaking utilizes the barest of resources; she often films in her own apartment and incorporates intentionally kitschy, lo-fi effects.

    S, M, L, XL
    May 9 – October 4
    The democratized approach to the role art plays within a museum, gallery, or home continues to the present day, with contemporary artists self-consciously creating works that interact with audiences. S, M, L, XL highlights four works that reflect this artistic attitude across five decades.
