MCA Prime Time is an after-hours series that taps into the creative pulse of Chicago with an eclectic mix of live music, performance art, film screenings, and interactive programs that transform the museum in spectacular ways. The series is an electrifying social experience created with artists and key cultural groups in the city.

The Off Rack edition of Prime Time presents an evening focused on the intersection of fashion, style, and contemporary art. Through a night of music, fashion and dance, Off Rack explores what’s in vogue with a series of art activations and a selection of distinctive food and beverages.

Rapper, dancer, and producer Le1f brings his distinctive voice artistry and impeccable taste with a performance in the Kovler Atrium.

Savor drinks on the Kern Terrace all night long while enjoying dance performances by Joshua Ishmon, Dominique Atwood, Peter Gaona, and Jasmin Williams as well as DJ sets by Sadie Woods and Bonita Appleblunt and artwork by Brandon Bullard, in a program organized by Ciera Mckissick, founder of AMFM Gallery.
