This friday, we will be hosting a reception for artist Leslie Hewitt and cinematographer Bradford Young to celebrate there newest installation at the MCA Chicago, Untitled (Structures).Comprised of a series of silent vignettes, filmed at sites connected to the Civil Rights movement, the two-channel video installation explores the struggle for racial equality in the United States. Hewitt and Young visited locations in Memphis, Arkansas, as well as here in Chicago, where these iconic photographs were taken. The film meditates on the resonance of history in the present day as the defining events of the past grow more distant.
Leslie Hewitt is a New york based artist, who's passion is to produce photographs that create meaning and understanding of history. Bradford Young has been described by The New York Times as “one of a cadre of emerging black filmmakers . . . making visually compelling cinema addressing the outliers at the edges of black culture in America.” Together, they create a visual experience like none other. You can view the installation at the museum of Contemporary Art Chicago through August, 2014.
The reception will kick off 7:00 pm and end at 10:00 pm at our Hyde Park location. Along with a chance to chat with the artists, we will have complimentary cocktails, along with sounds by Chicago legend, Jay Illa. We can't wait to see you all there!
