Join Carla Acevedo-Yates, Marilyn and Larry Fields Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago for a conversation on her exhibition Forecast Form: Art in the Caribbean Diaspora, 1990s–Today–which features artworks whose formal approaches reconfigure the relationship between identity and place through the lens of diaspora, displacement, and dispersal. Acevedo-Yates will be joined in conversation by contributing artists Suchitra Mattai and Cosmo Whyte. Mattai is a multi-disciplinary artist who uses craft-based processes to address topics such as legacies of colonialism and relationships between culture and gender.
Whyte creates conceptual work through drawing, performance, and sculpture that explores how notions of identity are disrupted by migration. Acevedo-Yates was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and has worked as a curator, researcher and art critic across Latin America, the Caribbean, and the United States. Forecast Form will travel to the ICA Boston this year and to MCA San Diego in 2024. This panel is presented in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and ArtNexus and will be followed by a book signing of the Forecast Form catalog in the Soho House Snug.
