Art AIDS America Chicago Alphawood Gallery December 15
A shuttered branch of MB Financial Bank sits on the northeast corner of Fullerton and Halsted. It's a bland, corporate, auburn brick building with rectangular aquamarine glass windows that's unmistakably a dispiriting white-collar business. »
Kapwani Kiwani: The Sum and Its Parts Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts January 20
The first American solo exhibition for Paris-based artist Kapwani Kiwani. Opening reception Fri 1/20, 6-8 PM.

Merce Cunningham: Common Time Museum of Contemporary Art February 11
You'd never mistake Merce Cunningham for a traditionalist. A tap dancer growing up, the striking, hollow-faced innovator of postmodern movement is credited with creating some of the most influential and radical dance-theater works of the mid to late 20th century. »
Congrats on Your Success Uncharted Books January 03
Rebecca O'Neal hosts this BYOB comedy show that features local stand-ups and is, curiously enough, operated out of a used bookstore.
Tattoo Field Museum October 21
Is tattooing an art form? Answers vary. »
Fackbuddies Den Theatre September 27
Longtime Chicago improviser Dina Facklis's new training program Chicago Improv Den is a tricky souffle either on the verge of rising or deflating. Facklis, an ImprovOlympic alum, started the Den last March, partly to create a troupe with an especially sharp focus on ensemble and emotional exploration and partly because, unlike iO and Second City, where students have to wait in order to perform, she sees training and performance as going hand in hand. »
Maxwell Street Market Maxwell Street Market July 01
Do you enjoy chomping on a fresh churro while sifting through weathered tools, ball caps, and odds and ends? Of course you do.
Lyric Opera's Carmen Civic Opera House February 11
Kader Attia: Reflecting Memory Northwestern University Block Museum of Art January 21
What does it mean to "fix" something? If a bond—physical, social, psychological—is broken, can it ever truly be reconnected? »
Riot Grrrls Museum of Contemporary Art December 17
My youngest sister moved to Chicago two years ago to study painting at Columbia College. As she develops her aesthetic, she's been looking to both art history and contemporary pieces for inspiration. »
Fantastic Super Great Nation Numero Uno Second City E.T.C. January 19
In the weeks and now days leading up to the inauguration, it seems like the jokes about Trump and the current state of our political climate are basically writing themselves. Between rumors of golden showers and the president-elect's meeting with Steve Harvey, it sometimes feels as if we're all living in one long political sketch. »
The Kates Book Cellar August 01 1
Stories, monologues, and more by this all-female comedy troupe and recent Best of Chicago winners.
Uptown Poetry Slam Green Mill July 10
Featuring open mike, special guests, and end-of-the-night competition.
The sole character in Glen Berger's one-act, an anxious and depressed librarian played by Darren Hill, is something of a dramatic one-man band. He wears a mike and speaker around his neck, fumbles around setting up the only props (a projector screen and piece of brown paper), then furiously clicks through slides as he relays his obsessive search for the borrower of a book that's 113 years overdue. »
