Dimensions of Citizenship Dome
In tandem with the current stateside exhibition, “Dimensions of Citizenship: Architecture and Belonging from the Body to the Cosmos” on view at Wrightwood 659 through April 27, we invite you to visit the Dimensions of Citizenship Dome, a pop-up installation inside the Chicago Athletic Association hotel.
The Dome, created by UChicago to highlight the exhibition, encourages viewers to probe questions surrounding citizenship — to think more deeply about the city we live in and those around us.
Stop by to view the impactful installation, learn about the artists’ works, and consider what citizenship means to you.

More About Dimensions of Citizenship
How might architecture and design respond to, shape, and express the paradoxical conditions of citizenship today? That is the question several Chicago-based artists and others sought to answer through their participation in the U.S. entry to the recently-concluded 16th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, co-commissioned by the University of Chicago and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Dimensions of Citizenship will be on view for the first time in the United States at Wrightwood 659, presented in Chicago by the Alphawood Foundation in collaboration with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and The University of Chicago.
Through works by different teams of architects, designers, and artists, “Dimensions of Citizenship: Architecture and Belonging from the Body to the Cosmos” explored the idea of citizenship in seven graduated scales: Citizen, Civitas, Region, Nation, Globe, Network, and Cosmos.
