Chicago in Photography: Documented, Imagined, Abstracted, and Re-made
This panel brings together participants from the Chicago Architecture Biennial working with photography as a medium, including Chicago architect Marshall Brown's experimentation in collage as a creative tool and artists in the exhibition Love of the World, curated by Jesus Vassallo as part of Johnston Marklee's broader artistic vision for CAB.
As a document of and commentary on Chicago’s unique place in architectural history, photography serves a significant role in connecting contemporary architecture with the past. Considering the Biennial’s theme of “Make New History,” panel participants will discuss their individual approaches to photography as artists and architects, as well as the relationship of images to the built environment. In conversation with art historian and curator Greg Foster-Rice, the panel reflects upon how photographers in Chicago have also documented real conditions, have turned to the city as a source for abstraction and aesthetic exploration, or have manipulated the photographic image to propose new realities.

"Chicago in Photography" is part of Art Design Chicago, an exploration of Chicago’s art and design legacy, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art with presenting partner The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.

Johnston Marklee was selected to participate in the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial exhibition titled the State of the Art of Architecture. The contribution, House is a House is a House is a House is a House, juxtaposes artist photographs - external perspectives on the work of JML - with the internal reading of each project in the form of a collage.

The 3rd Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art
The key term of the 3rd Ural Industrial Biennial is Mobilization, understood here as an ability to change and rise to a fundamentally different level. Curator Li Zhenhua imagines his project, titled No Real Body, as an extreme way to find out if art has a starting point or an original source of creative energy. Biljana Ciric's exhibition, titled Spaces for Maneuver—Between Abstraction and Accumulation, projects the general theme of Biennial Mobilization through centering the exhibition around the individual body as a site and tool, negotiating individual existence between social abstraction and accumulation, proposing to imagine rather than to produce.
The curatorial concepts will follow the logic of the space of the historic Iset Hotel, which will house a larger part of the Biennial's programs—the main project, the final exhibition of the Artist-in-Residence program and research projects. The Iset is an integral part of the NKVD residential compound, which became popularly known as Gorodok chekistov (Town of NKVD officers); it is one of the most impressive architectural landmarks of Ekaterinburg and an outstanding example of international constructivist architecture of the 1920s–30s.
