The Man Who Talked Until He Disappeared : Bani Abidi

September 4, 2021-June 5, 2022

Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, 220 E Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL, USA

The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago presents a solo show by Pakistani artist Bani Abidi titled The Man Who Talked Until He Disappeared. The show critiques those who hold power—and the many ways they wield it— using humor and absurdism. Like an archaeologist of urban life, Abidi intermingles fact with fiction in stories that navigate the intersection of personal and political drama. This major survey, developed in collaboration with the Sharjah Art Foundation, explores more than two decades of Abidi’s practice and features video, photography, sound installations, and new work, as well as work from the MCA Collection.
