Chicago Architecture Biennial
Jim Duignan, Jeff Kowalkowski, & Malose Malalela
Stockyard Institute / Chicago and Keleketla! Library / Joannesburg 2019

Stockyard Institute with the great Jeff Kowalkowski and radio man Davion Mathews, used a small micro-watt radio transmitter from the site of the future home of the National Public Housing Museum to collect and broadcast stories of the community, for the community and with the community. Malose Malalela activated the building with scaffolding which encased the structure and pointed to its outlines. Tap dancers and tapped and the aesthetics of an outdoor opera set the stage for live performances and including an opera singer.
