CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — A one-man retrospective featuring installation and architectural projects will be exhibited June 15 through July 7 at I space, the Chicago gallery of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

“erik m. hemingway: h+a [WORK]” includes architectural constructs, artifacts, drawings and video work by the U. of I. architecture professor, representing projects constructed from his studio locations in Chicago, Detroit, New York and San Francisco. The exhibition traces Hemingway’s professional evolution, from his 1992 Columbia University thesis work – collapsing electronic landscapes titled “Television City” – to recent design/fabrication work of hemingway+a/studio, which he titles “ready-made[ARCHITECTURE].”

The award-winning architectural designer – whose work has received international recognition in such publications as Architecture Record, *surface, architecture, and Global Architecture – recently relocated his office from Detroit to Chicago in a Mies van der Rohe-designed Lincoln Park Tower. More information about Hemingway and his work is available online.

An opening reception is planned in conjunction with the exhibition, from 5-7 p.m. on June 15 at the gallery, 230 W. Superior St., Chicago.

I space gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
