Friday Night Soundtrack summer program at the MCA connects music, art and the city

Chicago Tribune - 05-16


How does a museum welcome audiences and encourage them to interact with one another to find a shared sense of community? How can guests connect with one another through a shared experience, both visually and aurally? The Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) will attempt to answer these questions during Friday Night Soundtrack, a new summer-only, monthly programming block to launch this month. Each session will feature a different artist with a musical practice “curating” the museum’s sound for visitors. Whether they are a DJ or a band or a sound artist, each performer will use the works on display in the museum as their source of influence for their sets.
