Description

Public Performances: The Arts and Politics of Architecture
The Otto and Marlys Coelln Symposium

Saturday, March 23, 2019
9:30am–6pm

This one-day symposium, presented in conjunction with the University of Illinois at Chicago’s international design competition for a new Center for the Arts, will examine the ways in which architecture both delivers and deviates from contemporary expectations for its political, technical, and aesthetic performances.

Please note that seating is first come, first served. When Gallery 1100 reaches capacity, attendees will be able to view the conference via simulcast in an adjacent space.

For more information, visit the UIC School of Architecture website.
