The Last of Animal Builders at Edith Farnsworth House

Explore art and architecture at this new exhibit!


Time Out says

The Last of Animal Builders is curated by Alberto Ortega Trejo and features the works of Faysal Altunbozar, Selva Aparicio, ASMA, Daniel Baird, Renée Green, Claudia Hart, Ragnar Kjartansson, Michael Rakowitz, Joshi Radin and Thiago Rocha Pitta.

The works in this show, selected from the Thoma Foundation’s collection and several Chicago-based artists, open a dialogue between the artists and the iconic Mies van der Rohe-designed home and surroundings.

Whether through video, drawing, or sculpture, the works in this exhibition engage animal, vegetal, and mineral metaphors as vehicles to suggest alternative interpretations of human becoming, social transformation and material exchange.

This show both enhances the houses current staging and provides a fresh lens to view the space and history with a special nod to and commentary on Lord Palumbo’s former sculpture garden on the grounds. 

Head to the galleries website for more information on how to view the show in-person before its closing on November 26.
