Funny, It Doesn’t Look Jewish - An Exploration of Architecture Of, For and Particularly By Jews

12:00 - 1:30 P.M. - Spertus Institute, 618 S. Michigan
Sponsor: Spertus Institute
$100.00 for members, $125.00 for non-members for four lecture series, including a Kosher lunch.

The adjective "Jewish" is often seen as an irrelevance when applied to art or architecture. How can the structure of a building be analyzed in terms of its Jewishness? Can the symbolic or aesthetic appearance of a building be considered Jewish? This four-session course explores these questions. First, we’ll look at buildings specifically designed to serve the Jewish community. Then we'll explore the works of Jewish American architects, in Chicago and across country. Finally, we will have a roundtable conversation with architects, some Jewish, some not, who have addressed this subject in their practices and research..

Sponsor: Architecture and Design Society of the Art Institute of Chicago,
$10.00 A&D Society members; $15.00 general public, $5.00 student with valid id

Lecture by architect and educator Bernard Tschumi. As a theorist Tschumi first came to attention with the project The Manhattan Transcripts (1981), experimental drawings that played with architectural notation and its inherent cinematic qualities. Influenced by the social and political dimensions of the field, he has written several books, most notably the Event-Cities series (1994 and 2000) and a collection of theoretical essays, Architecture and Disjunction (1994). From 1988 to 2003 he served as visionary dean of Columbia's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. There he transformed the school into one of the most revered, influential, and internationally relevant institutions of its kind and boldly brought new digital technologies into the school's design practice. Bernard Tschumi Architects was established in Paris in 1982 with the commission for the Parc de la Villette, a $300-million, 125-acre cultural facility in Paris. The firm's projects include museums in New York, Athens, and Sao Paolo, among other projects. In 1999 Time hailed Columbia's Alfred Lerner Hall, designed by the architect in collaboration with Gruzen Samton Associated Architects, as one of the international best buildings of the year. Tschumi has received additional distinguished honors include France's Grand Prix National d'Architecture in 1996, as well as awards from the American Institute of Architects and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Catherine Opie: Chicago (American Cities) - opening day of exhibition

10:00 A.M. - 5::00 P.M. - Museum of Contemporary Art, 220 East Chicago Avenue
Sponsor: Museum of Contemporary Art,
Through October 15th

During the past seven years, Los Angeles-based photographer Catherine Opie has undertaken a project in which she has systematically photographed key elements in several major American cities. Steeped in the documentary tradition and seeking to uncover aspects of each city’s identity and sense of community in her penetrating photographs, this series focuses on Chicago -- the American “city of architecture.” This new body of work examines the spectacular way the city’s architectural monuments are nocturnally lit, complemented by a group of views of Lake Michigan at different seasons during the year. While the architectural photographs are horizontally-formatted in black and white, Opie’s views of the lakefront are large-format color images so as to better reveal its changing light qualities and moods. These images present a nuanced vision of key aspects of Chicago’s identity in a revelatory and unexpected way that reflects an intermingled formal, conceptual, and documentary emphasis.

Todd Eberle: Architectural Abstractions - opening day of exhibition

10:00 A.M. - 5::00 P.M. - Art Institute of Chicago, 111 S. Michigan
Sponsor: Art Institute of Chicago,
Through August 13th

Opening day of an exhibiton of the work of Todd Eberle, whose most recent photographic series proposes fresh ways of seeing, thinking about, and interpreting architecture. His radically cropped, totally flat representations of interior surfaces transform the figurative into the abstract. His ostensible subject matter in each picture, which canbe ascertained only from the title, is secondary to the work's visual construction as a modular, repetitively patterned surface--most often an interior ceiling plane. Eberle, best known for his pictures of Donald Judd's artwork and buildings in Marfa, Texas, started his career taking photographs of such artists and architects as Zaha Hadid, Philip Johnson, Brice Marden, and Agnes Martin. He then expanded into architectural and fashion photography. This presentation of his work comprises 12 large-format (60 x 45 in.) photographs, and highlights include the ceiling outside an elevator bank at Gordon Bunshaft's Lever House, New York (2002); an elevator cab at Chicago's Lake Shore Drive apartments by Mies van der Rohe (2002); and a Frank Lloyd Wright ceiling at Unity Temple in Oak Park (2002).Pictured to the right is Untitled No. 10, from the Tennessee Pipeline Company Building in Houston.
