EXHIBIT CURATION AND DESIGN

Odile Compagnon is an architect based in Chicago and Paris. Compagnon joined the faculty at SAIC in 1998,
after teaching at Parsons Paris and the School of Architecture at UIC. She collaborates, in teaching and research,
with professors from several departments, including Performance, Writing, Continuing Studies, and Art Education.
Compagnon earned her degree at the Unité Pédagogique d’Architecture n°3 in 1982, also attending the University
of Illinois at Chicago (1980–81) and the Istituto Universitario di Venezia in Italy as a research scholar (1982).
After working with Chemetov and Huidobro in Paris, Compagnon established her own company, DMC Architectes,
which undertook public commissions and created master plans for several cities. Compagnon worked with
Studio Gang/O’Donnell (Chicago) from 1997 until 2000, where she contributed to projects, including
the Rockford Starlight Theatre, Material Evidence exhibition installation at the Museum of Contemporary Art,
Chicago, and the Chinese American Service League Building. Her work has been shown at exhibits including
Speculative Chicago, Diversecity Riba (Chicago), and the Parachute Pavilion exhibition (New York).
Compagnon’s projects have received top recognition by Architecture Mouvement Continuité in its annual
review of built architecture (1994, 1995, 1996).

Ania Jaworska is an architect and educator. She currently teaches art, design, and architecture courses
at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Chicago. She holds a master’s degree
in architecture from the Cracow University of Technology in Poland as well as the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan.
Her practice focuses on exploring the connection between art and architecture and her work explores bold simple forms,
humor, commentary and conceptual, historic, and cultural references. Jaworska’s work was recently presented
as part of 13178 Moran Street: Grounds for Detroit in Common Ground, at the 2012 Venice Biennale . She recently
completed a design for the bookshop at the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts in Chicago.
