MCA Talks highlight cutting-edge thinking and contemporary art practices across disciplines. This program is organized by Daniel Atkinson, Manager of Learning, Adult Interpretive Programs, and Nolan Jimbo.
A central fixture and connective force within Chicago’s artist community, Gregory Bae (b. 1986, Salt Lake City, UT; d. 2021, Chicago, IL) played many roles during his time in the city, among them artist, educator, curator, and organizer.
On the occasion of Chicago Works: Gregory Bae, which presents a focused selection of Bae’s work, join artists Josh Dihle, Mika Horibuchi, and Tony Lewis—all of whom were close friends with Bae—for a broader look at his practice, as they share memories of his past projects, community organizing, and the context in which his work emerged. The discussion is moderated by Nolan Jimbo, Marjorie Susman Curatorial Fellow and curator of the exhibition.
