The Chicago Architecture Biennial has released its cultural agenda for this year’s edition of the international exhibition. Held in the Chicago Cultural Center and all over the city, from the 19th of September 2019 till the 5th of January 2020, this edition under the theme of: … And Other Such Stories, is going to be curated by the artistic director Yesomi Umolu, the executive director Todd Palmer and co-curated by Sepake Angiama and Paulo Tavares.
With more than a 100 cultural, civic and educational event activating the American city of Chicago, the largest contemporary architecture, art, and design exhibition of the continent will put in place accessible, diverse and inclusive programs, such as curatorial talks, workshops, performances and film screenings. Throughout the course of the Biennial, sites across Chicago will be animated by events produced by and in coordination with the Biennial.
“Chicago is at its best when a diverse range of communities, organizations, and individuals come together to learn from one another, collaborate, and explore our shared histories and hopes for the future. The comprehensive range of programming taking place during the Biennial is an exciting example of the exchange that makes our city so dynamic” — Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot.
This year’s theme…And Other Such Stories revolves around the history and circumstances that have shaped the urban development in Chicago, and the conditions that continue to do so. It will actually encourage the discourse on architecture and the built environment within the community, and explore the field on a global level. Through a research-based approach, the Biennial will explore ideas about the potential of architecture, space, and the natural world, under 4 big titles: No Land Beyond, Appearances and Erasures, Rights and Reclamations and Common Ground.
