Assaf Evron: Collages for the Esplanade Apartments

Thursday, Sep 19 – Oct 3, 2019

78 East Washington Street, Chicago, IL

Location: 900 Lake Shore Drive

This site-specific installation at the 900 N Lake Shore Drive apartments, designed by Mies van der Rohe continues Assaf Evron’s Collage Series. After Mies immigrated to the U.S. in 1938, he made collaged works of domestic interiors featuring American landscapes. Evron similarly treats the Esplanade Apartment building’s windows with a mountain range located in Israel--creating a dialogue about global citizenship. Presented with the Elmhurst Art Museum.
