With two days until it opens, the MoCP staff is putting the finishing touches on its newest exhibition, Survival Techniques: Narratives of Resistance. The exhibition, which examines the ways individuals and groups endure long-term hardships, opens this Friday.

Prior to the exhibition opening, the MoCP will host a screening of Thet Sambath’s Oscar-nominated film, Enemies of the People, which follows Sambath’s quest to uncover the truth behind Pol Pot’s government-sponsored massacre of Cambodian citizens in the late 1970s. The screening will take place Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at 623 S. Wabash Ave.

On Thursday, Survival Techniques curator, Davide Quadrio, will join contributing artists Julika Rudelius and Li Mu at the MoCP as they take visitors on a tour of the exhibition at 4 p.m. An opening reception will follow at 5 p.m.

Both events are free and open to the public. For more information, check out the Events page on the MoCP’s website.
