Every Line is a Decision: The Life and Legacies of Peter Palumbo
March 16, 2022—December 17, 2023
Join us as we jump into the Palumbo years (1971-2003) with a new interpretive wall and introductory film in the Visitor Center. This also marks the return of Miesian furnishings to the House accompanied by some of Lord Palumbo’s art and accessories, as they appeared c.1999.
On Sunday April 2, 2023, Edith Farnsworth House opened The Last of Animal Builders, an exhibition curated by Alberto Ortega Trejo, Mexican artist and architectural researcher based in Chicago and Pachuca, Mexico. A contemporary reinterpretation of the sculpture walk that formerly occupied the property during Lord Peter Palumbo’s ownership of the house, this temporary exhibition brings five art videos selected from Thoma Foundation’s Art Collection and works by five contemporary artists to the Edith Farnsworth House. By using not only the house and its landscape, but also spaces normally out of sight for visitors – the boathouse, the garage and the pool changing room – this installation becomes an extension of the house ecosystem and its spatial relevance.
