Chicago, Illinois

To support Myth of the Organic City (September 2024–June 2025), a broad-ranging exhibition that provides an overview of Chicago’s early designs, historical development, and contemporary usage of its water, land, and air, beginning with its Indigenous roots and extending to present-day climate concerns. Drawing from Chicago’s seal “Urbs in Horto” or “City in a Garden,” the exhibition pairs Chicago’s historical design choices with contemporary artist projects and community-led approaches to offer ways of reimagining our complicated relationship with the city and with nature. The grant supports an engagement fellow, who liaises with community partners and develops community-responsive public-engagement activities. The project is part of the Terra Foundation initiative Art Design Chicago.
