MCA Talk: This is Your Brain on Drugs

  • Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago 220 East Chicago Avenue Chicago, IL, 60611 United States (map)

Hamilton Morris is on a one-man crusade to understand the world of drugs. The host of Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia on Vice.com, he has traveled from Iceland to Brazil to China and beyond to explore—and sometimes sample—the effects of mushrooms, frog secretions, synthetic marijuana, and much more. Marrying scientific rigor with journalistic research, Morris (son of famed documentary filmmaker Errol Morris) considers his quest an ongoing experiment in what he calls “ethno-chemistry.

Admission is $12, or $5 for students.
