Excursion: Bubbles and Clouds

Museum of Contemporary Photography, 600 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60605

Excursion: Bubbles and Clouds

This field trip begins with a meet up at the MoCP for a briefing session and group viewing of the Petcoke: Tracing Dirty Energy exhibition with participating artist Rozalinda Borcilă. Participants will then set off on a facilitated walking excursion to explore the geographic, social, and aesthetic impact of petrocapitalism by investigating the current wave of investment bubbles and real estate mega-speculation in downtown Chicago. Please meet at the museum, bring public transit fare and be prepared for several hours of walking outdoors, with numerous pauses for discussion, observation, and exploration.
