On September 12, the museum opens its new permanent collection of modern and contemporary architecture and design. Past Forward: Architecture and Design at the Art Institute is a dynamic, issue-driven installation drawn from the museum’s world-class holdings. From visionary architectural drawings and innovative industrial designs to user-generated products and speculative research, the exhibition explores the many fundamental roles of architecture and design in our history and culture.
Integrating the architecture and design of the space into the visitor experience, these galleries present a forward-looking history of modern and contemporary practice as a living social and cultural process. The exhibition’s thematic chronology invites audiences to engage with local and global issues including war and political movements, material and technological transformations, and the effects of globalization-while challenging us to think critically about the objects, spaces, and networks that define the way we live. A serial approach to the collection’s display will continually refresh the presentation and present opportunities for ongoing conversation with the general public, architecture and design enthusiasts, and experts in these fields.
