Refinery29’s “29Rooms” has been plaguing Instagram and Facebook since it premiered in New York back in September 2017. The popular exhibit is finally coming to the Windy City. 29Rooms: Turn It Into Art tour will make its last stop in Chicago July 26th-29th.
The fun-house style exhibit will feature 29 interactive rooms created in partnership with different artists and brands. The exhibit creates “an inclusive, interactive, and highly visual space meant to unlock visitors’ imaginations, spark dialog, and fuel self-expression”. Past versions of the exhibit have included a room where visitors can walk on a massive typewriter and a room made entirely of paper shreds.
The event will feature some rooms from past New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco events, as well as new rooms in collaboration with Midwest artists. An official statement made Wednesday states that the theme, Turn It Into Art, “celebrates the transformative power of creativity, and explores how art can alter mindsets, shift perception, and create powerful change”.
