We invite you to join the CAB 5 Celebration on Wednesday, November 1, 2o23, at the Chicago Cultural Center for a special evening to mark the opening of exhibitions across Chicago for CAB 5: This is a Rehearsal, curated by Floating Museum.

Guests will enjoy a preview of the exhibition, see special performances, hear from Floating Museum and have the opportunity to meet CAB 5 participants. Lite bites and cocktails will be served.

The CAB 5 Celebration will provide crucial funds to support the Chicago Architecture Biennial’s mission of convening the world to explore innovative ideas and bring people together to collectively imagine and shape the future of design.
