Join us, in celebration of the Chicago Architecture Biennial, for a series of workshops exploring the connection between architecture and social change. This month's workshops will be lead by visiting artist Lyndon Barrois Jr.
Realizing the benefits of joining forces with other creative makers and thinkers, many artists today are increasingly sharing authorship. During this session lead by LAB:D – the collective effort of artists Addoley Dzegede and Lyndon Barrois Jr. – participants will explore methods of collaboration as they partner up to build a construction that is the same height as one of their team members.
