Chicago is just full of people with fabulous, creative ideas. The Exquisite City is one of these. In a riff on the Surrealists' exquisite corpse technique, diverse artists were asked to create a city block out of cardboard and sundry other materials, in their own style; the result, arranged in grids in the dark interior of the Viaduct Theater on Western off Belmont, is a dreamy concoction--part fantasy, part nightmare.
One of those exhibits you just have to experience--complete with Chicago sound effects and huddling hipsters. It's open through 12 December.
If you miss it, perhaps it will return. Certainly, the show's worth repeating.
