Through green-screen performances and object play, participants have the opportunity to work with Sarah and Joseph Belknap on their upcoming videos. Interweaving Mars Rover conspiracy theory, plant life, outer space, meteorites, and similar objects, this program explores touch, play, and the strangeness of our planet, Earth.

In Progress is a new MCA series of public programs that give visitors a glimpse into the working practices of artists. It highlights Chicago artists with a focus on live art happenings, discussions, workshops, and screenings that expose the behind-the-scenes labor of art making.

This series further positions the MCA as a platform for creative culture, providing a place for artists to test ideas and push their practices to new levels through audience engagement and creating a forum for conversation and interaction in our new space, the Commons.
