Design Applause — "Studio Gang debuts new gallery featuring blue tin production and a broader abolitionist movement."

"The opening of the gallery coincided with the opening of the 2021 Chicago Architecture Biennial, where Studio Gang was a partner. The 2021 Chicago event, titled The Available City includes 15 site-specific architectural installations: located on public and private lots located in Chicago’s neighborhoods . . . . A Different Future in the Making shows how these questions are being explored by Blue Tin Production, the first apparel manufacturing worker co-operative in the U.S. run by immigrant, refugee, and working-class women of color.
