Hear from Chicago-based artists Assaf Evron and Claudia Weber about their site-specific installations in Mies van der Rohe’s McCormick House. For this two person exhibition, each artist took over a separate wing of the single-family home. Israeli-born Evron creates an installation inspired by Mies’s handmade collages to connect features of architecture with ideas about immigration, including his own personal experiences. The German-born Weber actually resides in the other half of the McCormick House for the duration of the exhibition. As she lives, works, and exhibits in the space, Weber’s projects reflect on the structure’s history as a prototypical home and current function as a museum space. Learn more about their artistic intent and particular interests in Mies’s biography, his legacy, the Bauhaus, and unique features of the house.
