Juxtaposing views of Chicago—from those of alienated "outsiders" to those of more sympathetic residents—this exhibition reveals the many ways in which we can see and know a city (including the ways in which we are all outsiders). The main attraction is Chicago (2011), the tenth film in an ongoing series of city portraits by New York–based artist and filmmaker Sarah Morris. In it, she pans Chicago's iconic architecture, then zooms in to reveal a less tidied, more intimate and ultimately more authentic look at the city. Also featured are works from the MCA Collection by Chicago artists as well as non-residents.
