Thank you again for your support and participation in the 2021 CAB program. We are already working to bring you a year-round calendar of programs and have some exciting updates and programs in development for 2022 and beyond. We are thrilled to share that CAB will have a year-round exhibition space at the Chicago Cultural Center where we will continue to explore ambitious, innovative, and imaginative ideas in architecture and design. 

To kick off the 2022 InDialogue series, we invite you to join us for our first program on Tuesday, February 15, that features a conversation between The Available City contributors Elleza Kelley and Isabel Strauss. 

Stay tuned as we roll out announcements for new programs in youth education, exhibitions, publications, workshops, and other events focused on communities across Chicago and cities around the world. 

This conversation will consider the relationship between spatial practice, Black aesthetic, and how personal histories create collective power within our cities. Moderated by The Available City curatorial fellow, Lauren Speigel, this conversation features 2021 CAB essayist Elleza Kelley and 2021 CAB contributor Isabel Strauss of Riff Studio, who will discuss their practices and CAB contributions.

This CAB InDialogue program is presented by Hindman Auctions
