This event is complimentary with RSVP and open to the public. Entry is first-come, first-served and RSVP does not guarantee entry if capacity is reached.
The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago is one of the nation’s largest facilities devoted to art of our time, offering exhibitions of the most thought provoking art created since 1945. This summer, the MCA presents the landmark exhibition “I Was Raised on the Internet,” an immersive and participatory show examining the impact of the internet and how it has changed the way we experience the world. The exhibition presents a global range of artists working in new media such as Oculus Rift and platforms like Facebook and Snapchat, who examine the influence of gaming and entertainment, as well as social media and smart phones, on everyday life. “I Was Raised on the Internet” is on view now and runs until October 14, 2018.
