FREEBIES OF THE WEEK
galleries The Seductiveness of the Interval
After you see New Insight—works by MFA students from across the country, handpicked by the Renaissance Society’s Susanne Ghez—at Art Chicago ($20 well spent), go see more evidence of why Ghez is such a local gem (free). She’s the one you can thank for bringing The Seductiveness of the Interval, a show by three breakout Romanian artists, installed in its own two-story structure—and a hit at last year’s Venice Biennale—to Chicago.
GO: May 2-June 27. Renaissance Society, Cobb Hall, U of C, 5811 S Ellis. renaissancesociety.org
