    Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art will host a series of talks this fall, featuring some of the biggest names in the music industry.

    Three different artists, including Chicago’s very own Chance the Rapper, will take the stage at the museum in a partnership with Pitchfork, and the conversations will feature “new perspectives in music, art, and culture,” according to the museum’s website.

    Chance will take the stage at the museum on Nov. 17. The rapper has made waves for releasing his albums, including his latest work “Coloring Book,” for free on the internet, and he’s also made a name for himself as he engages in various charitable endeavors throughout the city of Chicago.

    Tickets will go on sale for Chance’s talk on Oct. 11, and they will cost $20 apiece.

     The series will kick off on Sept. 13 with Grammy Award-winning singer Solange Knowles. Her song “Cranes in the Sky” won a Grammy in 2017 for Best R & B Performance, and she was also nominated for five NAACP Image Awards and for four BET Awards after the release of her “A Seat at the Table” album.

    Tickets for her talk will go on sale Aug. 23.

    California rapper Vince Staples will hold a talk on Oct. 13. Staples released his latest album “Big Fish Theory” earlier this year, receiving widespread critical acclaim for the work.
