Chicago: Don’t Miss Solange Knowles at the MCA

Each month the Museum of Contemporary Art hosts an MCA Talk, offering artists of all mediums the opportunity to openly discuss and explore new perspectives in culture.

Next month, Solange Knowles will be joining MCA Talk with writer and essayist Britt Julious. Solange has always been articulately outspoken in regards to the cultural struggles faced by black Americans. A Seat at the Table was a living, breathing documentation of those struggles, highlighting the micro-aggressions and systemic racism that plague young and old. Most importantly, Solange’s messages are uniting. Don’t Touch My Hair is an anthem for black girls everywhere!

Most recently, Solange has continued to share her thoughts on such topics through other art forms. Her upcoming outdoor performance, Scales, will be showcased in Marfa, Texas, according to Pitchfork.

Needless to say, this MCA Talk isn’t one to miss.

Tickets will be limited. Set your alarms and purchase tickets for $20 (or $15 as a student) here at noon. The event will be held on Wednesday, September 13th at 7:30PM.

In the meantime, if you still haven’t visited the Takashi Murakami exhibit at the MCA, don’t miss your chance! The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg will be on display until September 24th.
