The 11 contemporary artists were chosen to enrich and enliven Fashion Outlets of Chicago, a newly opened, $250 million, multi-level luxury outlet mall. Since the beginning of June, filmmakers Bilowit and Orihuela have been in production on the documentary series, capturing each of the site-specific, large-scale installations.
The caliber of artists is unusual for a retail center, and Wet Heat Project became involved as the developers of the windy city’s Fashion Outlets sought to fuse fashion and art in a new and innovative way – “artist-driven ideas actively integrated into the architectural framework and viewing space.”
