Then and Now: Conversation with Margaret McCurry and David Hovey

DePaul Art Museum, 935 West Fullerton Parkway, Chicago

The theme of this year’s Chicago Architecture Biennial is Make New History. We have asked two pairs of distinguished Chicago architects to discuss their careers, then and now, as they continue to make new history: how they started, benchmarks of their career, and what they are doing today.

Speakers:

Moderator: Lee Bey, architecture journalist and photographer; Vice President for Planning, Education and Museum Experience at DuSable Museum of African-American History

Space is limited at the DePaul Art Museum (DPAM) so reservations are recommended.

Come early to see the exhibit Ângela Ferreira: Zip Zap and Zumbi. the Mozambican-Portuguese artist’s first U.S. solo exhibition in conjunction with the Chicago Architecture Biennial. Ferreira’s work mines the complex historical relations that link African indigenous culture, slavery and European modernism. In this exhibition, Ferreira will bring together two projects that were never built: Mies van der Rohe’s 1913 commission to construct a private museum and house in the Netherlands; and Mozambican architect Pancho Guedes’ 1990s design for Zip Zap Circus School in Cape Town, South Africa. The exhibition includes documentary photographs, architectural drawings and a physical structure, which will become a platform for performances and community gatherings. Ferreira was born in Mozambique and raised in South Africa. She lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal, teaching fine art at Lisbon University.
