MCA & Pitchfork Debut Conversation Series Events

unnamed-3.jpg

In exciting music news for the city, the Museum of Contemporary Art has partnered with Pitchfork in order to present a series of curated talks, In Sight Out, which will focus on music, art, and culture. Guests will speak of their creative process and their artistry over time, much to the delight of attendees.

The first two artists participating as part of the series are the revered Jeff Tweedy and Carrie Brownstein. Tweedy will be discussing his time in the influential Chicago rock group, Wilco, as well as collaborations as part of Uncle Tupelo, singing with Billy Bragg, and his latest project, Tweedy, with his son, Spencer. He will be joined during the talk by Pitchfork's editor-in-chief, Mark Richardson.

Carrie Brownstein, notably a member of the groundbreaking indie-rock band, Sleater-Kinney, will take the stage to discuss her forthcoming memoir, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl, as well as her time in the band, developing the notable television show, Portlandia, and more throughout her journey as a standout musician. Jessica Hopper, Pitchfork's senior editor and the editor-in-chief of the Pitchfork Review, will moderate the talk.

Tickets are on sale now sold out for Jeff Tweedy's event, which occurs on July 16 at 7 pm, while the tickets for Carrie Brownstein's talk will go on sale on September 15 at 10 am for an October 30 event. Each conversation will be held at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Tweedy's event tickets cost $10 each, and are available via Museum of Contemporary Art or at their Box Office, at (312) 397-4010.
