This grant supports the 2019 Graham Foundation Artistic Director of the Chicago Architecture Biennial—the leadership responsible for developing the theme and curatorial vision for the exhibition and program. The Chicago Architecture Biennial plays a vital role to bring thought-leaders from around the world and across the city in a collective conversation on the past, present, and future of architecture. Founded in 2015 together with Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, the Graham Foundation served as a presenting partner of the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial.

The Chicago Architecture Biennial is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating an international forum on architecture and urbanism through the production of distinctive exhibitions and public programs. The Biennial creates new opportunities every two years for emerging talent in architecture, design, and the arts to engage a wide public audience.
