Unsettling Land

Fri, Oct 27    1pm

Unsettling Land is an event celebrating the culmination of three interrelated Buell Center timelines. As a capstone for the “Land” Conversation series and the publication of the accompanying booklet, the event will host two speakers presenting stories from the long history of settlement and its effects on the built environment in the Americas. As a celebration of the installation “100 Links,” designed by the Buell team in collaboration with the architects AD-WO at the Chicago Architecture Biennial, the event will host a discussion between AD-WO and the artistic collective Floating Museum, who curated the Biennial. And to mark 40 years since the foundation of the Buell Center, the event will conclude with a celebratory reception. Check back for a detailed schedule of events.
