Having outgrown its 237 East Ontario Street location and preparing to move to a new space, Art at the Armory captures a unique moment in the histories of the MCA and the Chicago Armory. Eighteen artists and artist groups transformed the soon-to-be-demolished five-story building in the making of Chicago’s largest exhibition of installation art. The catalogue includes an in-depth history of the Chicago Armory and the developments of installation art in Chicago since 1967. Seventeen color and seventy-six black-and-white illustrations offer a glimpse of this one-of-a-kind, transitory exhibition. Includes bibliography and solo and group exhibition histories.

Foreword by Kevin E. Consey. Essays by Robert Breugmann, Anne Rorimer, Nadine Wasserman, and Beryl J. Wright. 138 pages, MCA Chicago, 1992. Curated by Beryl J. Wright, the exhibition was presented at the Chicago Avenue Armory September 13, 1992–January 23, 1993.
All proceeds from the MCA Store support the exhibitions and programs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
