The KMA’s highest priority is the well-being of museum staff, visitors, and the community. We are closed right now but will reopen when we can ensure that everyone who walks through the door is protected from COVID-19. We are working on various reopening scenarios and will announce a timeline soon. In the meantime, stay connected with us through our website and social media channels.

Overview of Exhibition
Several Silences is a group exhibition exploring various kinds of silence – meditative, ambient, memorial, etc. – calling attention to the rarity of the absence of sound in our growing “culture of distraction.” Works range from Ryan Gander’s 100 laser-etched glass spheres to Gran Fury’s neon sculpture to Troy Brauntuch’s shadowy drawings on cotton. Organized by the Renaissance Society, University of Chicago.
