Moderated by the Biennial’s associate curator Sarah Hearne, this public conversation will bring Biennial participants Thomas Kelley (Norman Kelley, Chicago/New York), Wonne Ickx (PRODUCTORA, Mexico City), and Anna Neimar (First Office, Los Angeles) in dialogue with Lindsay Mican Morgan, curator of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Thorne Miniature Rooms.
