Symposium
29 November 2017 2.00pmAdd to Calendar 2017-11-29 20:00:00 2017-11-29 20:00:00 Urban Art and the Building: Urban Objects The Objects Symposium, part of the 2017-2018 Sawyer Seminar on Urban Art and Urban Form, focuses on all that “stuff” in urban space that’s neither building nor infrastructure—benches, streetlights, bus shelters, sculptures, performance works, and small-scale projects. Less an intervention as they are a kind of tactical insertion into everyday space, urban objects—whether mobile or static, animate or inanimate—re-activate public space in various ways. We will consider how these objects elicit a moment of pause for reflection and incisively draw our attention to urban space, processes, and issues. Speakers include Ogrydziak Prillinger Architects, Dana Cuff, Pope.L., and Dan Peterman. Eckhardt Research Center 401B Sawyer Seminar arthistory@uchicago.edu America/Chicago public
