Creative Chicago: An Interview Marathon with Hans Ulrich Obrist

1–6 pm
Navy Pier, Aon Grand Ballroom
600 E Grand Avenue

Creative Chicago: An Interview Marathon is a free five-hour series of interviews with artists, authors, architects, and others representing Chicago’s diverse creative community. Led by Hans Ulrich Obrist—artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries in London and one of the world’s leading art curators and critics, known for his long-form, dynamic interview marathons—it takes a multi-dimensional, multidisciplinary look at creativity in the city, past, present, and future. Through this wide-ranging dialogue, Obrist will examine the forces that have made and continue to make Chicago a creative powerhouse.

Creative Chicago is Obrist’s first US interview marathon. It is presented by the Chicago Humanities Festival during EXPO CHICAGO 2018 as part of Art Design Chicago, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art.
