The Renaissance Society is an independent, non-collecting museum of contemporary art located on the campus of the University of Chicago. Throughout its 100-year history, “the Ren” has been known for presenting vital practices from across the world, such as the first US exhibition of Alexander Calder’s mobiles in 1934; the Chicago debuts of Bruce Nauman, Joseph Kosuth and Jenny Holzer in the 1970s and 80s; key solo exhibitions by Mike Kelley (1988), Isa Genzken (1992), Felix Gonzales-Torres (1994), Kerry James Marshall (1998), Joan Jonas (2004), Danh Vo (2012), and Nora Schultz (2014). Admission to the gallery and events is always free.
