Throughout its histor y the city of Chicago has inspired myriad urban and architectural innovatio ns\, many of which have had far-reaching influence. Indeed\, urbanists and architects today still look to many of these historical moments in Chicago as exemplary instances of progression and development. The collection of th e Art Institute&rsquo\;s Department of Architecture has extensive holdings on work within the region of Chicago\, representing the important innovatio ns\, theoretical approaches\, and architectural movements spurred by the ci ty&rsquo\;s development. This exhibition surveys Chicago&rsquo\;s rich urba n history and explores contemporary approaches to five Chicagoisms&mdash\;k ey historical principles that have powered the city&rsquo\;s distinctive ev olution. \;
\n
 \;
\nAs part of a series in which the departmen t enlists contemporary architects and designers to organize installations t hat investigate critical issues within their practices\, architectural theo rist Alexander Eisenschmidt and art historian Jonathan Mekinda have extrapo lated key ideas from their recent publication\, Chicagoisms: The City a s Catalyst for Architectural Speculation. Along with designer Matt Wiz insky\, the team engaged contemporary architects to undertake their own inv estigations and interpretations of five Chicagoisms. Developed as architect ural models with corresponding manifestos specifically for this exhibition\ , these contemporary explorations are presented with historical black-and-w hite photographs that are emblematic of the five Chicagoisms. This juxtapos ition of the historic and the contemporary underscores how the architectura l and urban history of Chicago can act as a catalyst for new forms of specu lation and innovation.

Chosen from among approximatel y 300 works by Kitagawa Utamaro (c. 1753&ndash\;1806) in the Art Institute& rsquo\;s collection\, this exhibition highlights some of the artist&rsquo\; s most celebrated prints. It was Utamaro who gave us close-up portraits of beauties with pensive expressions\, scenes of women engaged in everyday act ivities such as cooking\, and images of women of every age against backgrou nds that range from gray to yellow to brilliant (and luminescent) mica of v arious shades. Examples of each of these types of prints as well as illustr ated books are on view.

Throughout the 20th century to the present\, artists have found both clever and practical methods of ques tioning the idea of authorship and authenticity in the \;production&nbs p\;of an art object. Artists have continually reenvisioned their own involv ement in artistic production \;by \;utilizing a variety of strategi es\, such as \;outsourcinglabor \;to studio assistants or skilled&n bsp\;craftspeople\, \;making artwork under pseudonyms\, \;providing instructional \;parameters for ephemeral installations\, and \;co- opting other artists' artwork as a material base for use in new works.  \;Stemming from early conceptual practices and moving toward high-productio n studio models developed by contemporary artists\, this exhibition showcas es images and texts that elucidate the methods\, work\, and studio practice s of artists including \;Francis Alÿ\;s\, \;John Baldessari\,&n bsp\;Vern Blosum\, \;Marcel Duchamp\, \;Gaylen Gerber\, \;Felix Gonzalez-Torres\, \;Sol LeWitt\, \;Martin Kippenberger\, \;Jef f \;Koons\, Takashi Murakami\, Stephen Prina\, Robert \;Rauschenber g\, \;Andy Warhol\, and \;Christopher Williams.

&ldquo\;I shall always push th rough curtains to privacy\, and want some whispered words alone.&rdquo\;2\n

For the past seven months\, my studio and library have shared a space. This renders physical the \; impure qu ality of my various art activities. My making\, writing\, and modes of plat forming3 spring into being as interrelated parts\; I don&rsquo\;t wish to o bfuscate my deep feelings about art history nor the hope I harbor for ways that community can form. This work is intimately entangled with the apparat uses by which my practice is constituted\, but also those that I elect to h elp construct. I&rsquo\;m endlessly curious about what of significance migh t be apprehended among several positions or along their margins.

\n

To traverse these braided pathways&mdash\;these crisscrossed lines of desire and orientation&mdash\;I felt that I needed t o build a time machine\, and so I sewed a pillow. I ravished a piece of vel vet with my teeth to get a feeling for a painting Jasper Johns made after h e and Rauschenberg broke up.4 Appropriative gestures in painting became utt erly sincere ones. I arranged a private liaison with Jon\, one of the sweet people who run peregrineprogram\, and hope to tell you more about that aft er the fact. My mom said\, all too eagerly\, &ldquo\;At least you&rsquo\;re on the game board!&rdquo\;5

Harry and Edna were everyday p eople who lived extraordinary lives. They frequented fancy parties. They tr aveled the world. And they captured it all on film. Half a century later\, their photographic journey continued by falling into the hands of Jeff Phil lips. Phillips\, a Chicago-based photographer\, discovered the lives of Har ry and Edna in 30 boxes filled with more than a thousand unlabeled Kodachro me slides at a second hand shop in St. Louis. An artist who has always been fascinated by found photographs\, he bought them\, wondering why these eni gmatic family portraits were abandoned.

\n

Phillips began sharing the vivid and kitschy images on Facebook where he asked\, &ldquo\;Is This Your Mother?&rdquo\; The unknown couple is seen at a holiday party\, on a tropical cruise\, posing on an iceberg in Alaska an d in front of famous places. The more images he shared\, the more intent he became on finding the people in the pictures.

\n

The number of visitors to the page grew quickly\, and a disparate search party of amateur genealogists and online sleuths emerged. They fora ged for hidden details\, scouring census databases and immigration records for possible connections. Others participated by remarking about the fashio ns of the period\, or by proposing imaginary dialog that might have occurre d between the two unknown persons.

\n

Co uld the social media community help restore their identities\, or would the y be lost forever?

\n

Lost and Found  \;is a unique exhibition of photography that tells the story of a social media search party attempting to discover the identities of an anon ymous couple who traveled the world more than 50 years ago. This exhibition presents the beauty\, humor\, and mystery of found photographs and explore s the intersection of photography\, social media\, and our places in histor y.

Document is pleased to present Weling\, a solo exhibition of new works by Thomas Killian Roach.

\n

For several years Roach has made flatbed scans of movies and live feeds directly from a small tube television&mdash\;dist orting the uniform moving image into fluctuating waves\, compressing multip le shots onto a singe plane. His process resembles weaving: the longitudina l grille of the television is the warp\; the horizontal movement of the sca nning bar the weft\; the television&rsquo\;s electron gun a loom&rsquo\;s f ast-moving shuttle.

\n

Roach&rsquo\;s id iosyncratic process extends and expands upon a minor tradition that spans E adweard Muybridge and Etienne-Jules Marey&rsquo\;s motion studies\, early M odernist collage\, and Chris Marker&rsquo\;s manipulations of time\, memory \, and the electronic image.

\n

Roach ha s made and archived thousands of scans\; Weling is their debut. The five wo rks on view represent distinct lines of his practice. The exhibition&rsquo\ ;s title\, Weling\, is disjointed text recorded in one of his first scans o f live television.

\n

The exhibition fea tures three large-format scans and two smaller studies. An essay by Ara Mer jian accompanies the exhibition.

\n

Thom as Killian Roach (b. Bridgeport\, Connecticut 1985) lives and works in Chic ago. He is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has recently exhibited in Cologne\, Dusseldorf\, Berlin and Chicago.

Rebecca Gray Smith is debuting a complete series of etchings called "The Alphabet"\, letters A-Z plus two repeated letters for a total of 28 images. The series was begun in fits and starts over a 25 year period \, originally intended as a response to the AIDS crisis. It has recently be en completed\, and was printed at Anchor Graphics in Chicago. These works e xplore the presence of death in all human endeavor\, using traditional sign ifiers of mortality such as the skeleton as a primary actor and subject. Ea ch letter corresponds to a specific fatal activity or malady\, highlighting the act of existence as a high risk activity fraught with peril.
