Join us for a screening of a lavish documentary never before seen in Chicago, first aired in the UK at the time of the acclaimed Victoria and Albert Art Deco exhibition.

DECO: The Art of Glamour tells a story that covers fashion, film, photography, music and architecture as it tracks the development of Art Deco – from its Roaring Twenties beginning in Paris to a high-spirited zenith that was abruptly halted by the outbreak of World War II.

The film follows the movement as it brought new levels of excitement to the pleasure palaces – the hotels, cocktail bars, cinemas and ocean liners – that sprang up in the fast-changing world of the 1920s. Art Deco is shown as a liberating force and a global phenomenon that reached beyond the boundaries of the fine and decorative arts, evolving from a luxurious style for the rich and famous into a style dream for the masses.

The only Chicago screening of this unique film is at our CADS Annual Meeting on February 22nd at Roosevelt University.
This event is free and open to CADS members and their guests and Roosevelt University students and faculty. Seating capacity is limited so pre-registration is strongly encouraged to ensure that you will have a seat.
