Assaf Evron & Claudia Weber

February 16 - April 14, 2019

Mies van der Rohe's McCormick House is the site of a two-person show by Chicago-based artists Assaf Evron and Claudia Weber. Israeli-born Evron's installation is inspired by Mies’s handmade collages to connect features of architecture with ideas about immigration, including his own personal experiences.

The German-born Weber will actually reside in the other half of the McCormick House. Read More ›
