The fall 2018 meeting of the Midwestern Art Cataloging Discussion Group (MACDG) was held on October 26 at DePaul University. Eleven attendees hailed from Illinois and Indiana.
Our day began at the DePaul University Library with the MACDG business meeting and active discussion, detailed further on the “past meetings” page. After a break for lunch, the group was given a tour of DePaul Art Museum’s exhibitions with assistant curator Mia Lopez. Exhibitions included Brendan Fernandes: The Living Mask; Yasuhiro Ishimoto: Someday, Chicago; and Whitney Bradshaw: Outcry.
Lastly, the group was given a tour of the Roger Brown Study Collection. This space is a house museum, archive, and one of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s (SAIC) special collections. Preserved in SAIC alum Roger Brown’s (BFA 1968, MFA 1970) former home and studio, RBSC is filled with objects from the far corners of the world of thing-making.
