Creative Chicago: An Interview Marathon with Hans Ulrich Obrist

September 29, 2018

Creative Chicago: An Interview Marathon was 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 took a multi-dimensional, multidisciplinary look at creativity in the city, past, present, and future, examining the forces that have made and continue to make Chicago a creative powerhouse. As part of the event, Jeanne Gang joined renowned artist Barbara Kasten in conversation, followed by a Q&A with Obrist.

Creative Chicago was Obrist’s first US interview marathon. It was 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.
