ROOFTOP ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN FILM SERIES: DAVID ADJAYE - COLLABORATIONS Jones Center, 700 Congress Ave. Roof opens at 6P, Film at 7P. $10 General Admission / FREE for Members BYOB *Screening two nights: Wednesday, March 22, and Thursday, March 23. Collaborations is a portrait of British-Ghanaian architect David Adjaye through the eyes of others. The film features interviews with Adjaye's collaborators, a roster of influential figures in the art and cultural world as well as a significant number of his architectural projects, including public buildings, residential houses, artist studios, and exhibition spaces globally situated and developed over the past fifteen years. The collaborators--artists, curators, and writers, most of them interviewed on site--give creative insights into Adjaye's buildings while also offering highly personal perspectives on the particular collaboration. By looking at the work through the eyes of others, the understanding of the architectural approach is enhanced, personalized and broadened to encompass a wider discourse. The film was specially commissioned by the Haus der Kunst in Munich and The Art Institute of Chicago as part of the first extensive survey exhibition about David Adjaye's architectural work, curated by Okwui Enwezor and Zoe Ryan. (Directed by Oliver Hardt, 2015, 48 minutes.) Thank you to our Rooftop Architecture & Design Film Series sponsors! Co-Presenting Sponsors: Nelsen Partners, dwg.
