Alum Bani Abidi is presenting work in an exhibition [15] at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. The show, entitled Bani Abidi: The Man Who Talked Until He Disappeared, features video, photography, and sound works exploring the artist’s practice over the past two decades. “This exhibition is an ensemble that acknowledges multiple forms of living in relation, moving across geographies while holding onto aspiration and desire. With dry wit and storytelling, Abidi gestures to how acts of defiance remain legible and embrace irony in her milieu—carving out pockets of liberation from scenes of dominance and forced homogenization,” shares the curatorial team. Bani Abidi: The Man Who Talked Until He Disappeared will be available for viewing from September 4 to June 5.
