Fall preview: Andy Warhol and the first Botanic Garden holiday lights fest make for an exciting season at Chicago-area museums

Chicago News

“Direct Message: Art, Language, and Power”: Going back to the 1960s, this major exhibition aims to examine words in art — or, to put that in museum terms, “the ways artists rearrange and reconfigure communication structures as starting points for social critique and political inquiry,” as MCA Chicago’s website puts it. So not just words, I guess, but also logos, TV broadcasts and more. Sounds fascinating. Oct. 26 to Jan. 26, 2020, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, 220 E. Chicago Ave.; 312-280-2660 and www.mcachicago.org.
