The MCA is proud to present Howardena Pindell: What Remains To Be Seen, the first major survey of the artist’s 50-year career. Featuring works in a range of media, the exhibition explores Pindell’s experimental visual language and game-changing activism, both of which continue to resonate in the art world today.

Be the very first to view the exhibition while enjoying a refreshing beverage and hors d’oeuvres. Refreshments are available for Circle Donors through 7 pm, with remarks by Pritzker Director Madeleine Grynsztejn at 6 pm. Our preview continues until 9 pm, with the exhibition open to all members.
