Inside this issue:
Grab a copy of our special 1980’s edition of StreetWise Magazine! The issue covers a wide range of topics relating to the era, including a feature on the MCA Exhibit, “This Will Have Been – Art, Love & Politics in the 1980’s,” the dramatic change of the social geography in Chicago, homelessness during the decade, the struggle with AIDS, the inception of underground music in Chicago, a fun 1980’s Chicago timeline, and more!
The front cover of the magazine features a work of art included in the MCA Exhibit entitled Rabbit by Jeff Koons, created in 1986. Exhibit curator Helen Molesworth said Koons’ Bunny was iconic of the period because it was “vicious in the desire to be looked at [and] yours to be seen. It is an unabashed guilty voyeuristic pleasure. ‘I see you. Do you see me watch you?'”
