For her exhibition 150 South Cottage Hill Ave, Elmhurst, IL 60126, artist Claudia Weber will move into one wing of Mies van der Rohe’s McCormick House in Elmhurst, IL, from February 16th until April 14th, 2019, and use this website to document her stay.
As Weber will live, work, and experiment in the space for two months (the wing will continue to be open to the public), she will be investigating what ensues when its current use as an exhibition venue is overlaid with its original role as a prototypical home. Through this provoked simultaneity she will not only address the relationship between art, architecture, and life, and between idea, process, and result, but also how they correlate with the cultural climate of both the current moment and the post-war era when the house was built. While working through these issues, Weber will also host a variety of events and welcome interactions with visitors during her stay.
In the other wing of the McCormick House an installation by artist Assaf Evron will be on view. Both exhibitions are part of the Year of German-American Friendship initiated by the German Federal Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut, and supported by the Federation of German Industries (BDI).
