MoCP: A Look at Weeks of Installation

The Museum of Contemporary Photography housed in the Alexandroff Campus Center, 600 S. Michigan Ave., is the only museum in the Midwest with an exclusive commitment to the medium of photography. From Oct. 7–18, the MoCP took a brief hiatus to construct its new exhibit “Of Walking,” which opened Oct. 19 and runs through Dec. 20. The exhibit features eight contemporary artists whose works explore thinking while walking.

Curators, directors, artists and interns collaborated on the exhibit, painting, spackling, packing the artwork, hanging framed photographs, sequencing images and filling out conditioning reports. Although most museumgoers may not be aware of it, the museum’s staff members transform boxes of photographs into an inspiring and thought-provoking exhibit.
