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.
