I space is the College of Fine & Applied Art’s gallery and forum for the visual and performing arts in Chicago. Its mission is to encourage the exploration, experimentation and understanding of the arts as a vibrant expression of human experience and intellectual discourse through exhibitions, performances, classes, and lecture-demonstrations. Located in the heart of the Chicago’s River North gallery district, I space is surrounded by art galleries, architectural offices, furniture and other design retail outlets.
Architecture Professor Emeritus Hub White designed the sparse and beautiful gallery interiors which encompass more than 2500 square feet of exhibition space. 2-3 architecture-related exhibits are included at I space each year.Chicago art critic and artist Claire Wolf Krantz named I space Gallery as 2004’s “Best Gallery” in the Chicago Artist Coalition newsletter.
