Public Performance Presentations 2014
Wednesday, July 23rd
1:00pm – 3:30pm
The School of the Art Institute of Chicago
280 S. Columbus Drive
012 Performance Space in the basement
An informal reception will follow in the Columbus 012 Performance space.
24 participants of the three-week summer course devoted to abandoned practices and endangered uses have been engaged in research, performance, installation, and writing projects, with teachers Matthew Goulish, Lin Hixson, and Mark Jeffery, teaching assistant Amelia Charter and administrator Rana Siegel. This years visiting scholars were Augusto Corrieri and Jane Blocker.
You are invited to attend presentations on Wednesday, July 23rd, devised in response to the form of the Chautauqua Assembly, a traveling rural adult education institution, the popularity of which peaked in the late 1800s. Sharing the theme of useful knowledge, the four presentations of 18 minutes in length each weave a series of strictly timed original responses to subjects such as “Whore Dialogue” and “Link Boy,” in alternating presentational modes of expert lecture, traveling exhibition, entertainment performance, surrealist lecture, and non-human performance.
