Over the last few years, Bespoke has had the opportunity to work with the MCA in Chicago  - a truly risk-taking and civically engaged contemporary art gallery. 

We are proud to have played a part in the planning for their new gathering place that is free to the public. In the words of the Director, Madeleine Grynsztejn, "Audiences today want a space where they can come together and interact. We are finding that people are really hungry for civil and civic dialogue - now more so than ever."

Working in close collaboration with their senior leadership team, Bespoke explored the possibilities for this audience engagement zone. Christina Bagatavicius facilitated an intensive design charrette that brought a mix of staff and cultural leaders together to explore potential futures for the vision and arrive at an exciting way forward.
