The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago has an exhibit that offers a
good break from AERA inundation. (Tuesdays are free!)

Lessons in Learning: Art and Education from the Artistsí Book Collection

 From the web page: "The centerpiece of this collection-based exhibition
is the video Singing Lesson II by Polish artist Artur Zmijewski whose
work often draws from socially-marginalized groups or individuals who
are disregarded due to their physical or mental disabilities. Singing
Lesson II is filmed inside the Church of St Thomas in Leipzig with a
Baroque chamber orchestra, conductor, soprano, and choir of girls and
boys who are deaf and challenged to perform something that is considered
impossible because of their disability."
