In honor of the MCA’s 50th anniversary, the museum presents We Are Here, a major three-part exhibition drawn from the MCA’s collection. We Are Here declares that contemporary art and culture have the power to change the way that we see the world. It considers the role of museums as repositories of knowledge and demonstrates how the collections they build shape art and its history. The exhibition overturns the traditional model of the anniversary exhibition, focusing instead on the relationship between artist and viewer through a series of thematic exhibitions that explore the potential of art to alter our perceptions. The multigenerational artists featured live around the world and work in a broad range of media, including painting, sculpture, installation, sound, film, and video.
