Art Institute of Chicago | Virtual Artist Talk: Ambiguous Standards Institute

June 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 5:45 pm

Free, registration required
Join Maite Borjabad, Neville Bryan Associate Curator of Architecture and Design, and Zoë Ryan, Daniel W. Dietrich, II Director of the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, in conversation with architect Cansu Cürgen and designer Avşar Gürpınar.
Founders of the Ambiguous Standards Institute (ASI), Cürgen and Gürpınar investigate how our lives are inevitably shaped and impacted by standards—whether for time, measurements, building components, food, or health care. ASI’s work is featured in the current exhibition “Ambiguous Standards Institute: An Institute within an Institute.”
This program is presented by the Franke/Herro Design Series.
We recommend using a laptop or desktop computer and downloading the latest version of Zoom to enjoy this program.
