Curator Tour: Urban China: Informal Cities
MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART, CHICAGO
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2011 NOON
Museum of Contemporary Art Associate Curator Tricia Van Eck will lead Center members on a special tour of Urban China: Informal Cities. The exhibition brings together a retrospective of Urban China, the only magazine devoted to issues of urbanism published in and about China. The exhibition space has been transformed into a physical manifestation of its pages, as if exploded into three-dimensions. The installation charts networks of influences upon urbanism such as politics, economic growth, governmental policy, and planning, and how these translate to citizens’ often spontaneous and informal decisions and the impact this has upon cities.
RSVP Required (Limit 20);
