The Mart with a projection on it reading "Whose Justice?"

During NeoCon an Installation Lights Up the Mart

A projection by noted conceptual artist Barbara Kruger takes over the facade of theMart twice every evening during NeoCon.

Launched in September 2018, the Art on theMart program is the largest permanent digital art projection in the world, splashing the works of renowned artists across the vast riverfront elevation of theMart. This fall, the program features Untitled (Questions), 1990/2021, a projection by the artist Barbara Kruger, coinciding with a retrospective of her work at the Art Institute of Chicago. Every evening at 7:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. (CST) through November 25, her characteristically provocative text-based projection interrogates our relationships to each other, as well as the dynamics of identity, desire, and consumerism.
