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 windows are treated with images of Germany and the Middle East furthering a conversation about global citizenship, while also collapsing rational architecture with the natural world. The German-born Weber will actually reside in the other half of the McCormick House. Read More ›
