Regular? Super? Irregular?

Chicago continues its love affair obsession with Mies next week with the screening of Regular or Super: Views on Mies van der Rohe. The 52-minute documentary was made by Montreal's 4x4 Films and received the Award for Best Canadian Work at the 22nd International Festival of Films on Art.

The screening at The Harold Washington Library on November 30 at 6pm is hosted by the Mies van der Rohe Society. Reservations are required with each ticket costing $40. This rather steep price though does get you cocktails beforehand and a panel discussion afterwards, the latter with Stanley Tigerman, former IIT dean Gene Summers, Fred Camper and Edward Lifson from WBEZ.

The film includes observations by Tigerman and Summers, as well as Elizabeth Diller, Dirk Lohan, Rem Koolhaas, Phyllis Lambert, Peter Pran, and others.
