Friday Night Soundtrack

Contemporary sound-based artists transform your MCA experience on select Friday nights with custom soundtracks reflecting their perspective of works on view in the museum.

Starting at 6 pm on Friday nights throughout the summer, the MCA invites Chicago artists to the central Commons space to activate the museum with live music and DJ sets created to accompany the exhibitions on view. The Soundtrack series is free to attend and kicks off on Friday, May 31 with Chicago-based visual artist, musician, and educator Damon Locks, and continues with performances on June 28 (Hijo Prodigo), July 26 (CQQCHiFRUIT), and August 30 (D-Composed). In addition, Lykanthea presents an In Progress performance of her latest album on Friday, August 9.
