Athens and Oraibi explores art historian Aby Warburg’s concept of simultaneity through the contemporary architectural vernacular. The photographs and photo-based work of Assaf Evron (Chicago, U.S.; Tel Aviv, Israel) focus on the structures and forms of the overlooked, revealing a visual state of both excess and deficiency.
The inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial is North America’s largest international survey of contemporary architecture. Through its constellation of exhibitions, full-scale installations and events, the Chicago Architecture Biennial will invite the public to engage with and think about architecture in new and unexpected ways, and to take part in a global discussion about the future of the field.
