In light of current political events and climate, I grabbed a few friends recently to check out the Museum of Contemporary Art‘s (MCA Denver) new exhibit, Citizenship: A Practice of Society, a collection of politically engaged art made since 2016.

The exhibit features works by more than 30 artists—among them Nan Goldin, Paul Ramirez Jonas, Trevor Paglen and Dread Scott. The collection demonstrates how artists engage in civic life and provides examples of how we can do the same in our own communities.

Nora Burnett Abrams, the Mark G. Falcone director of the MCA, gave a personal tour that was engaging and thought-provoking. So interesting to see how artists simulate civic engagement, regardless of partisan politics.

The exhibit also heightened our awareness of our nation’s political crises. The exhibit is on view through February 14.
