Golden Age, the artist-run project space located in the West Loop, set up their shop in the space.
Plural, the Chicago-based creative studio practice who designed the poster for the event, exhibited their work during the event. Photographer David Schalliol exhibited his Isolated Building Studies series.
The 12-hour event provided a platform for critical dialogue around design, a place to share ideas and approaches from different disciplines, and celebrated the immense talent of the design community in Chicago. The quality of the presentations, attendance across the 12 hours, and positive feedback demonstrated the need of these type of events in Chicago.
