Eclipses in Adler, ghost tours in Hull-House

Our department may be called Art+Entertainment, but great exhibitions are not just tonic. They should challenge your way of thinking, maybe even send you with a knot in your stomach. From where don’t do that Do we know the name Camille Claudel? Is race really a fixed category? How much non-recyclable waste do you create and how much are you ready to face?

To say that some of the museum openings this fall are “controversial” is not an exclamation, but a compliment of the highest order. There are a few people to run, not from there:

“In Search of Eclipses”: Mark your calendars: The next solar eclipses will occur from North America on October 14 and April 8, 2024. (The second of these is Chicago, just outside of a total eclipse; the moon covers 95% of the sun.) Exciting stuff – but you have to wonder what people on Earth were thinking thousands of years ago, when what an eclipse was less understood. it was, much less a tourism industry built around it. The Adler Planetarium answers all this and more in this exhibition that will last until the April eclipse. Until April 8, every day from 09:00 to 16:00 except Wednesdays from 16:00 to 22:00. At the Adler Planetarium, 1300 S. DuSable Lake Shore Drive, basic admission $8-19; adlerplanetarium.org

A drop in the ocean: This summer, the Museum of Science and Industry opened a modest, gripping exhibition that explores the pressures of plastic pollution on ocean life. The visuals and storytelling are plain, but it’s not just a lesson in disaster and gloom.

Friday, from 10:00 to 19:00. and Saturday. 10am to 5pm, Newberry Library, 60 W. Walton St.; free; newberry.org

Wong is a professor at the Art Institute School; As Reid Wong states in his biography, “degree candidate at Drummond Montessori School (kindergarten, ’24).” The Wongs created works on display together to answer two daunting questions: “What makes something Chinese?” and “What does We Chinese?” In doing so, they also refer to “Chinese Art,” or “Chinese Things,” as Reid Wong calls it, the Western art frenzy derived from Orientalist motifs. “Chinoiserie (Chinesey Things)” will run until Wednesday, October 22. and Friday. Sunday, 9:30 am to 5 pm. 10 am to 5 pm, Chicago Chinese American Museum, 238 W. 23rd St.; suggested donation $5-8; ccamuseum.org

On their own terms: “We are in the presence of something unique, nature’s rebellion: a female genius,” wrote art critic Octave Mirbeau of Camille Claudel (1864-1943). However, as has happened to women in male-dominated fields, the sculptor’s work has been overshadowed by the more salacious details of her life, such as her relationship with her famous teacher Rodin or her struggles with mental illness in recent years. his life. The retrospective “Camille Claudel” at the Art Institute offers a necessary correction. From 7 October to 19 February 2024, 11:00 – 17:00 Friday-Mon, 11:00 – 20:00 Thursday, closed on Tuesday. and Weds., Art Institute of Chicago, 111 S. Michigan Ave.; tickets are $26-32; artic.edu
