“A Body Measured Against The Earth” at MCA Chicago
August 25, 2018 - April 7, 2019
Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, 220 E Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL 60611


Celebrating the legacy and continued practice of land art, this group show assembles works from the 1960s to present day by artists—Vito Acconci, Ana Mendieta, and Helen Mirra among them—whose physical interventions and conceptual documentation chronicle the body’s relationship to places, landscapes, and ecosystems.
