Skyscraper: Art and Architecture Against Gravity


Following fashion’s profound presence within museum and gallery exhibitions over the past few years, architecture is now having its moment. Skyscraper: Art and Architecture Against Gravity at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art explores contemporary works that take the form, technology, myth, message and image of the skyscraper as inspiration.

Dedicated mostly to the skyline of Chicago (the city has a rich history of architectural talent), this exhibition also features work from international artists as well as authors, filmmakers, poets and architects that reveals our fascination with building ever-higher into the sky.

Noteworthy featured artists include Roe Ethridge, Gabriel Orozco and Andy Warhol, among others. The exhibition runs until September 23 2012.
