Museum Of Contemporary Art Chicago

"The museum building is located in the heart of Chicago and in itself is a unique example of avant-garde architecture. Designed by the famous German architect Joseph Paul Kleichues, it combines classical proportions, laconic forms and the functional aesthetics of modernity, which made it possible to perfectly adapt it to the constantly evolving needs of the museum.The permanent exhibition of the museum includes more than a thousand exhibits of modern fine art: paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos and more. Here are the works of prominent representatives of pop art - Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns, kitsch devotee Jeff Koons, sculptor Alexander Calder, known for his intricate wire figures and kinetic "mobiles", as well as the famous master of staged photography Cindy Sherman, which allowed the Chicago Museum to take one step with the leading museums of the world. And since some installations may seem like "art not for everyone" to viewers accustomed to traditional culture, the curators of the exhibitions strive to help visitors understand the artistic context of all the works and complement them with explanatory texts and video materials. Thus, a visit to this museum in any case will be an unforgettable event even for people far from modern art.And you can complete an excursion into the world of avant-garde art with a walk through the sculpture garden, relax in a themed cafe or visit the theater hall, which regularly hosts performances or lectures. In addition, every first Friday of the month, the museum organizes cocktail parties where you can listen to performances by a jazz orchestra and chat with representatives of the art world."
