Keren Cyter at the MCA

Posted on by Kyle Jenkins Posted in Around Town, Explore Chicago, Film, Visual Arts | Leave a comment

Anyone looking at artist Keren Cytter’s website (which can be found here), expecting to find a logically organized collection of films is sure to be disappointed. The homepage features a poem with each word hyperlinked to other pages, showcasing works of art or small video clips all set against a plain black background. Her minimalist style and toned-down emotion of the actors involved all work to present a unique art form that even David Lynch would be proud of. Now, for the viewing pleasure of all involved, the Museum of Contemporary Art will soon showcase Ms. Cytter’s work in all it’s stark glory in their next exhibition. Ms. Cytter will present eight films, numerous drawings and a few live works.

The Museum of Contemporary Art, located at 220 E. Chicago Ave., opens its exhibit on the work of Keren Cytter opens on March 28 at 10 AM. Cytter will also lead a  talk at the MCA on March 28 from 3-4 PM. The exhibit will remain at the museum until October 4. While closed on Mondays, the MCA is open from 10 AM – 8 PM on Tuesdays and from 10 AM – 5 PM on Wednesdays through Sundays. General admission costs $12 and there is a $7 price for students (provided they bring a photo I.D.). To read more about the exhibit, follow the link here.
