What does it mean to characterize an artist by where they live and work? And similarly, what does it mean for a collection to be of a place—to reflect a museum’s history and artistic community, to be shaped by the dynamics of a city, to be used by and be seen as part of the locale where it lives?

The MCA’s new James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator Michael Darling, artist and writer Michelle Grabner, and critic Lane Relyea delve into these questions, looking at examples from the United States and internationally. A book signing of the just-released publication Can I Come Over to Your House? The First Ten Years of The Suburban follows the talk. The book features essays by Forrest Nash and Michael Newman. Design by Jason Pickleman.
