Theaster Gates will present the installation '13th Ballad' at the MCA Chicago.
'13th Ballad' is an extension of the artist’s '12 Ballads for Huguenot House', an installation which was co-produced by the MCA and exhibited at dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel, Germany (2012).
For '13th Ballad', Gates has created a new large-scale installation in the MCA’s Kovler Atrium that comprises objects and materials from the 'Huguenot House', as well as a set of re-purposed pews from the University of Chicago’s campus church, Bond Chapel.
