The Chicago Architecture Biennial has announced the full list of more than 80 contributors to the 2019 exhibition, titled ...and other such stories under artistic director Yesomi Umolu.

The full list of contributors to the third Chicago Architecture Biennial comes a couple months after a shorter list of 50 contributors was released. The architects, artists, researchers, and social activists come from four continents. In many cases the contributors will, per a statement from the Biennial, "[collaborate] across disciplines to present," once the Biennial opens to the public in mid-September, "projects that ask urgent questions about the implications of architecture as it relates to land, memory, rights, and civic participation."

The contributors were selected by Yesomi Umolu, working with co- curators Sepake Angiama and Paulo Tavares.
