The MCA in Chicago is currently showing a collection of work from 1979-1992 entitled, This Will Have Been: Art, Love, & Politics in the 1980s. Yesterday I went to check it out– and I figured I’d dress festively for the occasion. I’m wearing a skirt, tights, and mismatched earrings from Target, jean vest from Forever, a Nike Tee, and my Coach wedges. The exhibit was really interesting– especially from my viewpoint of being born in the late 80s. I loved getting to see how politics, technology, music, and converging cultures made their mark on the art world and changed how we continue to perceive it to this day. Of course I ended my excursion in the museum gift shop. (I’m a huge sucker for anything sold in a museum gift shop.) I now have a new favorite trinket– it’s a funny take on a mood ring. You simply spin around the face on the ring if you feel like wearing your emotions on your hand.
