Creative Chicago: An Interview Marathon

Chicago Humanities Festival, in partnership with The Terra Foundation for American Art’s Art Design Chicago initiative, EXPO CHICAGO, and Navy Pier, presents Creative Chicago: An Interview Marathon, led by one of the world’s most influential curators and critics — Hans Ulrich Obrist, artistic director of London’s Serpentine Galleries. Known for his dynamic, long-form interview sessions, the five-hour interview marathon will be comprised of back-to-back conversations with prominent Chicago innovators from a variety of creative fields.

Obrist’s first U.S. marathon will take place Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018, in Navy Pier’s Aon Grand Ballroom, during EXPO CHICAGO 2018 (Sept. 27–30). Creative Chicago is funded in part by the Terra Foundation for American Art and is a centerpiece program of its year-long, citywide initiative, Art Design Chicago.

Participants include artist Theaster Gates and architect Jeanne Gang, as well as Chicagoans including author Eula Biss; artists Art Green, Joseph Grigley, and Brandon Breaux; architect Stanley Tigerman; photographer Dawoud Bey, and more.
