A curated component of the 2017 program, the second annual Symposium featured a day-long series of discussions and discourse surrounding the intersecting fields of art and architecture—including original members from Superstudio and the Italian Radical Design movement, artists David Hartt, Thomas Demand, and Luisa Lambri; critics Felix Burrichter from PIN—UP and Julian Rose from Artforum, as well as Flavin Judd, among others.
Additional panels included an intimate conversation between author Sarah Thornton and artist Paola Pivi; artists Tom Burr and Nina Beier; a keynote discussion with Sharjah Art Foundation President and Director Sheikha Hoor Al Qasimi; and an interview with Chicago-based artist Michael Rakowitz on his first-ever U.S. museum survey organized by Omar Kholeif, Manilow Senior Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, among others.
The Curatorial Forum, presented in partnership with Independent Curators International (ICI), and the EXPO CHICAGO Art Critics Forum was hosted on the /Dialogues Stage, open to the public for the first time since the inception of the program. The Symposium and announced panels joined the full program of over 30 discussions on the /Dialogues stage on-site at EXPO CHICAGO.
