Isa Genzken: Retrospective at MCA

In the town where I live, there’s a park that spans several miles along a river with numerous sculptures throughout.  The sculptures have never ceased to draw my attention. From awesome horse statues, to creepy posts with faces on them, to flat-out bizarre works that I literally just can’t hope to describe, these sculptures are at best, inspiring and at worst, cool conversation starters! If you’re a sculpture fan too, you should check out the exhibit going on now at the Museum of Contemporary Art!


Retrospective” is an exhibition dedicated to the work of German sculptor Isa Genzken.  The exhibit will include not only her incredible sculptures, but examples of all types of art she has created in her 30-plus year career. This will include paintings, photographs, collages, books, performances, and films as well.  So even if sculptures aren’t your thing, there’s still something for you to see! And who knows, maybe the exhibition will turn you into a sculpture-lover yet!

The exhibit began April 12 and runs until August 3.  For more information such as  hours, location, and fees, visit the official website.  Tuesdays are free days for Illinois residents. So if you’re strapped for cash and you’re bored on a Tuesday after classes finish for summer, why not check it out?
