...and Other Such Stories
Adrian Blackwell has been invited to participate in …and other such stories, the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial. http://chicagoarchitecturebiennial.org/
The biennial is curated by Yesomi Umolu (Artistic Director), Sepake Angiama and Paolo Tavares. They are focusing their process on a holistic and grassroots approach, drawing their inspiration from the history and development of Chicago’s built environment, and tracing how its issues are manifest in cities globally. Within this process, the city serves as a starting point for exploring a wide range of new approaches to tackling topics internationally, including equitable and affordable housing; land and environmental concerns; civic places of memory (such as monuments and memorials); and the role of rights and civic participation.
The Biennial will run from September 2019, to October 5, 2020, at multiple venues with the main exhibition housed in Chicago’s Cultural Center on Michigan Avenue opposite Millennium Park.
The Biennial announced a preliminary list of 40 exhibition contributors at a press conference on March 14, 2019:
