Cornerstone Gallery

The Cornerstone Gallery, which highlights work exclusively from the MOCP collection, exists both physically at the MoCP (digitally projected on monitors in the MoCP’s two windows at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Harrison Street), and virtually on the MoCP’s website. Originally conceived by artist Jan Tichy as part of a 2012 commission, Tichy has asked artists, curators, cultural producers, educators, and students to mine the MoCP collection and organize their own exhibitions around a central theme of their choosing. Each of these exhibitions is then displayed for a limited time in the Cornerstone Gallery window space. All prior Cornerstone Gallery exhibitions have been archived on our website and appear below.

This project has been generously supported by the David C. and Sarajean Ruttenberg Foundation.
