This field trip begins with a meet up at the MoCP for a briefing session and group viewing of the Petcoke: Tracing Dirty Energy exhibition with participating artist Rozalinda Borcilă. Participants will then set off on a facilitated walking excursion to explore the geographic, social, and aesthetic impact of petrocapitalism by investigating the current wave of investment bubbles and real estate mega-speculation in downtown Chicago. Please meet at the museum, and bring public transit fare and be prepared for several hours of walking outdoors, with numerous pauses for discussion, observation, and exploration. For additional information on further exhibition-related excursions with Rozalinda Borcilă, visit mocp.org.
