Today, Monday, June 11 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., the School of the Art Institute AIADO will be holding an opening reception for Tele Vision, this year's graduate thesis exhibition of the work of its emerging designers in the fields of architecture, interior architecture and designed objects.
Tele Vision, interpreted through its Greek and Latin roots, means “seeing from a distance.” The projects presented in the 2012 graduate design show share a long-view perspective, far-reaching in speculation, application, or duration. The exhibition is curated and designed by SAIC faculty member and architect Odile Compagnon with fellow faculty member Lisa Smith and Caroline Linder, who are partners in the design brand ODLCO and SAIC alumni (MDes 2008). Tele Vision features work by 45 SAIC students finishing their graduate degrees in seven programs
 The exhibition runs through July 21st, in the Sullivan Galleries, 33 North State, 7th Floor (you know - right above Target! ) The Galleries are open Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m., - 6:00 p.m.

The reception will be preceded by a panel discussion at 3:30, also in the Sullivan Galleries, which will "summarize and expand upon the themes that emerged during a day of critiques of the work the students included in the exhibition.  The panel will include Lisa Norton, moderator,  Professor of Sculpture and Designed Objects at SAIC; Obi Nwazota, architect, designer, and co-founder of Orange Skin; Martin Klaeshen, Adjunct Associate Professor at IIT and Principal in the architecture practice “HouseHaus” based in Chicago and Germany; Gillion Carrara, teacher of History of Fashion at SAIC and a highly regarded metalsmith exploring the relationship between materials, design, and function; and Pierina Benvenuto Giorgetti, an architect with roots in Chile, Argentina, and Europe, the editor of Revista Ciudad y Arquitectura, and the first prize winner in the recent North Lawndale Urban Agriculture Park Competition.
