Art & Design Chicago’s Living Architecture

On this Labor Day, Art Design Chicago will present Living Architecture, a multifaceted exhibition focusing on the role of immigrant communities in building Chicago’s culture. The program, funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art, will highlight the works of over 50 contemporary immigrant artists. Jan Tichy is a participating immigrant artist, with a background in art education from Israel. Tichy uses video, sculpture, architecture and photography to create conceptual work that is socially and politically engaging. He is also one of two artists commissioned by the Terra Foundation. Joining us to discuss are Tichy and Elizabeth Glassman, President and CEO of the Terra Foundation. Our global citizen, Nari Safavi, will also join us to give you a couple events to help you plan your international weekend!
