Living Architecture is a large-scale, multidisciplinary exhibition, with public programming including performances, tours, workshops, and conversational dinners that highlight the influence and impact of immigrant artists on Chicago. So that 6018North embodies the artistic process as a living architecture of labor, in July and August the artists will use the house as a studio, open on the weekend to the public and by appointment. On four evenings – July 16July 30August 13August 27 – the public is also invited to Working Studios, collaborative events where artists engage the public in their work as process-based, communal initiatives. Working Studios are on Mondays, often thought of as the first work day of the week. We invite you to join us.

Tour and Performance at Tree Studios
Saturday, July 28, 10:30am-12pm
Tree Studios
4 E. Ohio St., Chicago, IL 
 
Free public tours – walking and by trolley – occur at historic sites around the City to highlight Richard Bock’s work and other immigrants’ contribution to Chicago design. Tours include performances of music and dance by immigrant and first generation artists to breathe life into historic houses with contemporary innovation. These aim to upend narrow ideas of cultural heritage and national identity which often leave out the immigrants who built and worked in these homes.
The first off-site program is at Tree Studios on Saturday morning, July 28. Tree Studios was built by Arthur Woltersdorf, with relief sculptures by Richard Bock. To highlight Bock’s designs: Tom Burtonwood presents a performative maker-space, Dr. Sharon Grimes of the Richard W. Bock Sculpture Museum discusses Bock’s work, and Carlos Salazar Lermont presents a performance. Additional summer tours will be announced in the near future.
