The Shape of the Future

The Shape of the Future features works from the MCA Collection that reimagine the promise of a universal design language.

Coinciding with the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial, the exhibition explores modernism both as a framework for dreaming of a utopian future, and as an ideology marked by traces of labor, political fantasy, and cultural turmoil. Highlighting the histories and ideologies embedded in the built environment, these artists reveal the complexity—and at times absurdity—of the modernist project.
