Mycelial: Street Parliament

Inspired by the first revolution led on social media, Arab Spring (2010), Mycelial is a new performance that questions the existence of kinetic empathy through technology platforms. Using data captured from twitter feeds (# Egypt, #Yesallwomen & #BlackLivesMatter) during the social uprising, Chicago-based artist Erica Mott translates the rate, rhythm, emotional affect and spacialization of this feed through algorithmic analysis into choreography for 4 dancers (2 from Egypt, 2 from the US).

Dorian Sylvain: Embedded

The rhythmic poetry of Don L. Lee (Haki Matabuti) and Bill Walker’s murals embedded across Chicago’s Southside in the 1960s greatly influenced artist Dorian Sylvain growing up.  For this exhibition, she creates an 80 foot long temporary mural to reimagine how racial unity and pride appear in Black communities today.  

Anna Kunz: Color Cast

Painter Anna Kunz takes on the physicality of color and light in a large-scale installation.  Manipulating screens, transparency, free-standing board, fabric and paint, Kunz asks the viewer to experience abstract painting through their movement, sight and sound.
