The Beach Chicago
January 18 – February 3, 2019
Snarkitecture, a New York-based collaborative design practice composed of Alex Mustonen, Daniel Arsham and Ben Porto will bring their large-scale interactive installation The Beach for its sixth international stop to Navy Pier in alignment with EXPO CHICAGO 2019. The immersive installation is comprised of a tall enclosure which creates a large, open room filled with over a million antimicrobial and recyclable plastic balls along with deck chairs, lifeguard chairs, umbrellas and signage that mimic the sensation of a day at the beach, complete with a pier hovering over the ‘sea’ of balls from which onlookers can watch and revel in the installation below. Guests of the project experience the familiar social cues and visual sensations of visiting a beach while simultaneously being delighted by the unique and unexpected setting.
Located at Aon Grand Ballroom, Navy Pier. See public hours and more information here.
