Brandon Breaux x MCA Chicago


In 2020 I collaborated with the MCA Chicago Gift Shop on what was supposed to be in support of their annual Summer Program Tuesdays on the Terrace. As we all know many plans got interrupted in 2020 so the project which was supposed to support in inperson event turned more into a general collaboration to support a virtual version of Tuesdays on the Terrace.

Because of the timing and all that was going on the design began to take the form of an investigation of institutions, taking on the themes Access, Representation and Inclusion. The collaboration culminated with an impromptu public meditation on the museum’s terrace. You can read about this demonstration on the activations page of this site.
