Singing Stones, curated by the Palais de Tokyo’s Katell Jaffrès brings together 13 emerging artists from both the Chicago and French art scenes, including guest designer Andrew Schachman, to explore the multiple relationships between art and architecture. Presented within The Roundhouse, one of Chicago’s most iconic buildings designed by Burnham & Root in 1881, the exhibition will present an intimate dialogue between original productions and preexisting works. As the oldest building in Washington Park, the former horse stable served as a vibrant center of activity for almost half a century, before being closed to the public. The Hors les Murs exhibition reimagines the 17,000-sq. ft. space, allowing this architectural structure to be rediscovered as the DuSable enters a new phase of its development. With the renovation and extension of The Roundhouse, The DuSable Museum will become the largest African American museum campus in the United States. Its rotunda will soon feature educational spaces and exhibitions, Hors les Murs being the first.
