About

Each month, hear first-hand from the Chicago-based artists featured in the MCA's UBS 12 × 12: New Artists/New Works exhibition series and gain insight into the ideas and process that led to the work on view. Anne Elizabeth Moore is a visual and performance artist, media activist, and author. She is the founding editor of the Best American Comics series and a former editor of the Chicago magazine Punk Planet. Her MCA exhibition Garment Work includes a durational performance where the artist takes apart a pair of jeans with her hands over the course of the month. Garment Work is a working meditation on the international garment trade and women's issues in developing nations.
