The Chicago Architecture Foundation announced yesterday that Gregory K. Dreicer has been appointed Vice President of Exhibitions and Programs, a new position "created to expand the scope of exhibitions and programming and broaden the audience base."
Dreicer comes to CAF from Chicken&Egg Public Projects, Inc., founded in New York by Dreicer in 2000, "a leading exhibition planning, development, and design firm specializing in social, political, and technological issues." The firm created a revitalization master plan for the Museum of the City of New York. Prior to that, he served as a curator at Washington, D.C.'s National Building Museum, where his work included exhibitions such as Barn Again! in 1994, and Between Fences in 1996/7. Also in 1996, Dreicer coordinated the presentation of the exhibition Chairmania with Joseph Rosa, recently appointed Curator or Architecture and Design at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Dreicer succeeds former CAF curator Ned Cramer, who left the foundation last May to eventually begin editor of the new magazine, Architect.
