Martin Beck examines the paradoxes of history and intersections of art and architecture in his finely calibrated installations and conceptual artworks. Here, the artist presents a performative lecture commissioned by the Renaissance Society to coincide with the Chicago Architecture Biennial. Branching out from investigations into Chicago and its design histories, this new work draws out wide-ranging insights and hidden narratives.
