We’re pleased to have been invited to celebrate the Chicago Architecture Biennial by screening a classic episode of THE 90’s at the Hyde Park Art Center this Sunday. The screening is coordinated by South Side Projections, a nonprofit that presents films at locations across Chicago’s south side to foster conversation about complex social and political issues.

The entertaining, surprising, sobering pieces we will be screening touch on panhandlers in Philadelphia, a man who designed a bicycle-towed tent for homeless people, the ethical shortcoming of architects who are concerned only with money, the first McDonald’s in Moscow, unstoppable climate change, the demolition of Chicago’s Granada Theater and the still-incomplete restoration of the Uptown Theater, and more. They also include interviews with legendary Chicago architect Stanley Tigerman as well as video/performance artist and architect Vito Acconci (1940-2017).

Check out a short preview of the 57 minute program below.

We hope you’ll head out to the HPAC to see the show in person, but if you can’t, you can watch it here.

Will you support the organization you love? If everyone who watched our videos in 2017 donated $1 right now, we’d be set for more than ten years! Can you spare a few bucks to help us make it to next year?

Please make a one-time or recurring donation today.
