Curator and educator Sepake Angiama, and architect and urbanist Paulo Tavares will join the curatorial team of 2019 Artistic Director Yesomi Umolu.
Both co-curators have international, research-based practices that look deeply at how the built environment reflects social structures, augmenting Artistic Director Yesomi Umolu’s focus on global contemporary art and spatial practices. Their combined expertise in research, architecture and discursive practices means that diverse forms of knowledge-production and engagement will materialize in the Biennial’s forward-looking and international program.
The 2019 Biennial will be open to the public and on view from September 19, 2019 through January 5, 2020. Press and Professional Previews will take place September 17 and 18. The hub of the 2019 Biennial will once again be the Chicago Cultural Center, located in downtown Chicago.
