This week, from Thursday 26 to Sunday 29, Refinery29 opens its doors to the famed “29Rooms: Turn it Into Art” in Chicago. After sweeping New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco for the past 3 years, the “funhouse of style, culture, and creativity” makes its last stop, bringing the celebration of global artists and diversity of art mediums to the Midwest.

29Rooms Chicago: What to Expect

The 29 unique spaces will showcase popular installations from its NY, LA, and SF exhibitions as well as incorporate works from new Midwest-specific collaborators. Previous notable partnerships include Chloe x Halle, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lily Singh, Margot Robbie, and Demi Lovato. From poetry to responsive technology, the inclusive, multi-sensory, and interactive playground pushes the boundaries of imagination and self-expression.
