Public Collectors: Hardcore Architecture

@ The Franklin

3522 W.Franklin Blvd, Chicago IL

Opening Saturday, August 8th, from 6PM - 10PM

On view through Saturday, August 29th

Hardcore Architecture explores the relationship between the architecture of living spaces and the history of underground American hardcore bands in the 1980s.
Hardcore Architecture is a project of Marc Fischer and Public Collectors.

Established in 2007 by Marc Fischer, Public Collectors encourages collectors of material culture—the kind that most museums won’t exhibit—to ‘open’ their collections to the public.

Marc Fischer is a Chicago-based artist and a member of Temporary Services, a group that has produced over 110 publications and organized and participated in dozens of exhibitions, projects, and events. Fischer and Brett Bloom of Temporary Services also run the publishing imprint Half Letter Press.
