    Everybody's a curator
    You have a Netflix queue, which you maintain, nurture, cull and arrange just so. Therefore you curate movies. You have iTunes playlists on your computer, each of which probably tells a kind of story. Therefore you curate music. I don't have a...

    Why sci-fi is obsessed with the near future
    In the West Town loft that Jessica Charlesworth shares with husband, Tim Parsons, along the back wall, on a row of metal filing cabinets, a kaleidoscope of Post-it notes waved in a soft draft, each a kind of dispatch from the future. I leaned in to...

    Artist Samantha Hill reconstructs Bronzeville's history
    Samantha Hill awaits your input. And awaits. Then awaits some more. "I think people know I'm here," she said on a recent afternoon, not sounding all that certain. She laughed nervously. The Hyde Park Art Center was quiet. Hill, who is 39 and...

  • 10 years of being the faces on Crown Fountain in Millennium Park

    10 years of being the faces on Crown Fountain in Millennium Park
    For 10 years they have looked out from the 50-foot video towers, staring or smiling as tourists snap photos and children shriek while standing under the water streaming from their pursed lips. They are anonymous, yet famous — faces seen by huge...

  • 'Transformers: The Premake' makes Chicago critic a filmmaker

    'Transformers: The Premake' makes Chicago critic a filmmaker

     Cerqua Rivera Dance is stepping 'In the Depths'
    Three women, dressed in slips, get ready to go out for the evening, each examining herself in an invisible mirror and reacting to the process and the prospect. Pretty retro, right? Maybe a dance set to the 1958 "I Enjoy Being a Girl"? But...
