Paul Klein, a Chicago art booster, presents on the Huffington Post a look at the show his local Museum of Contemporary Art that features Chicago artists along with world-renowned painters to create a “watershed moment.”
In Constellations a splendid number of accomplished Chicago artists have been blended into a powerful show that includes Chicagoans Abercrombie, Sigler, Otero, Klement, Marshall, Kimler, Krane-Bergman, Ledgerwood, and Grabner along with fabulous works by artists from Magritte to Reinhardt. (The artists are listed in the order I encountered them and the order in which the images are reproduced. Did anyone notice that 2/3 of those gifted and deserving artists are women?) […]
I find this an intelligent move on the part of the MCA, expanding from the awareness that local art ‘works’ alongside global art to the realization that the dialog is enriched by the addition of The Local Voice to the International Chorus, be it harmoniously or as a counterpoint.
