This week's cover story | Jeanne Gang
Here's a sneak peek at what's coming up in this week's Time Out Chicago, on newsstands tomorrow:
- In advance of the Art Institute's exhibition on Studio Gang, the local architecture firm helmed by Jeanne Gang and her partner, Mark Schendel, we take a tour of Gang's studio. Did we find out how this young firm churns out one amazing project after another? Did we suss out what makes Gang tick? The former: oh, yes; the latter, for many reasons, is a harder nut to crack.
- Can Chicago finally have a successful, well-attended art fair? The new Expo Chicago just might have a fighting chance.
- Okay, so there's this guy Zamabada-Niebla awaiting trial in Chicago who's accused of being one of the masterminds behind the Sinaloa drug cartel. But wait, he says he had a deal with the DEA that it's now renegging on. And then there's the Chicago twins, also formerly involved in the drug trade, who turned out to be informants and whose dad's car wound up in the Sinaloa desert with a note sternly warning them to shut up and Dad still nowhere to be found...really, you just have to read the story.
