AWayAway - Healing -3.jpg


A Way, Away (Listen While I Say) is the first joint commission for Chicago-based artists Amanda Williams and Andres L. Hernandez. 

A Way, Away (Listen While I Say) is a project by artists Amanda Williams and Andres L. Hernandez that activates a building that has been slated for demolition and the adjacent land parcel through a series of interventions that draw attention to the life cycle of a building. During each phase, the site will be open to the public as a location for arts programming and participatory projects.

This project is part of PXSTL, a design-build commission collaboratively organized by the Pulitzer Arts Foundation and the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis.

Whether a child’s rudimentary compositions that seek to express excitement for the world around them, or sophisticated computer design software that is developed to imagine worlds not yet seen, the process of shaping is central to how we understand our relationship to place.   Learn More
