The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago Celebrates Merce Cunningham

Written by | Art & Design, Things to Do

Seminal modern dance figure Merce Cunningham will receive a major retrospective at both the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and Minneapolis’ Walker Art Center starting this February 11.


The exhibition will showcase multi-disciplinary projects, which explore Cunningham’s notion that “music and dance and art could be separate entities independent and interdependent, sharing a common time.” Collaborations with noted artists including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol will be highlighted — including vintage video, sets, and costumes — along with new dance pieces.
