Explore the absurdity of contemporary capitalism with an in-depth tour of “Mika Rottenberg: Easypieces” by Barjeel Global Fellow, Bana Kattan. Rottenberg’s videos and installations interweave documentation with fiction, and often feature protagonists in factory-like settings who manufacture goods ranging from cultured pearls to millions of brightly colored plastic items sold wholesale in Chinese superstores. The exhibition reveals the relationship between individual actions, mechanical modes of production, and global economies.
**This event is free with museum admission, and Tuesdays are always free for Illinois residents.**
