Catalyzing Activism: A Conversation with Chicago Architecture Biennial Artistic Director Yesomi Umolu (2019 Design Matters Conference)

Yesomi Umolu, 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial Artistic Director; Zoë Ryan (moderator), The Art Institute of Chicago

The third edition of the Chicago Architecture Biennial, “…and other such stories,” invites design practitioners to address social, geopolitical, and ecological processes that inform both how we think about and experience architecture and the built environment. Organized around a set of themes exploring land and commodity, memory and place, rights and contested spaces, this year’s edition of the Biennial is big, bold, and experimental. Born in Lagos, raised in the United Kingdom, and now based at the University of Chicago, curator Yesomi Umolu will provide us with an inside look at the process of delivering a Biennial fit for public dialogue and the insights she learned about communicating architecture.
