Join 21c Museum Manager Jennifer Murray on an immersive tour of our current exhibit, OFF-SPRING: New Generations, every Thursday at 4:00 pm. The tour meets in the lobby of the 21c Chicago.


About OFF-SPRING: New Generations

Rituals—religious and cultural, institutional and domestic—provide the thematic infrastructure for OFF-SPRING: New Generations. These sculptures, paintings, photographs, and videos employ iconographic imagery to explore the development of both personal and group identity, childhood, family, history, and gender politics. At the wedding altar, in the family home, or in the classroom, within the fantasy of childhood play or the familiarity of grown-up habit, these new, old narratives generate a spectrum of meditations on the contemporary construction of self and society.
