The Olympic City in Chicago
To coincide with the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, Chicago Loop Alliance presents Gary Hustwit and Jon Pack’s The Olympic City photographs as part of the Pop-Up Art Loop initiative. The exhibit features photographs from 13 former host cities taken between 2008 and 2013: Athens, Barcelona, Beijing, Berlin, Helsinki, Lake Placid, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Montreal, Moscow, Rome and Sarajevo. Pack and Hustwit have photographed structures, streets, and ephemera in these cities but have also focused on the lives of the people who live in areas affected by Olympic development and the re-use of former venues.
The exhibit will remain free and open to the public at CLA’s Pop-Up Art Loop space at 29 W. Randolph Street (Block Thirty Seven), Monday-Friday from 12-7 p.m. through March 7, 2014. For more information and details on additional Pop-Up Art Loop spaces open in the Loop, please visit www.PopUpArtLoop.com.
