'Actions' Exhibition Goes To Chicago


Opening October 16, 2009 Graham Foundation, Chicago
Original Exhibition Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA), Montreal
Curated by Mirko Zardini and Giovanna Borasi
An exploration of how everyday human actions can animate and influence the perception and experience of contemporary cities. Seemingly common activities such as gardening, recycling, playing, and walking are pushed beyond their usual definition by the international architects, artists, and collectives featured in the exhibition. Their experimental interactions with the urban environment show the potential of a new level of participation by city residents.

Seattle? How does this tour work, anyway?

Not sure about Seattle... just Chicago for now but may hit other cities in the US in future...

We'll cross our fingers here in the wet corner, in the meantime the website is pretty cool. Good work!

I hope so too... Will keep you posted here if it happens. Could certainly be the case.
