PERFORMANCE POST APPROPRIATION
@ The Nightingale
1084 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60642
Opening Saturday, April 23rd, at 7PM
Performance art is still thriving despite the bombardment of an oversaturated media culture, where so called reality is pumped out of TV shows and do it yourself web video postings. Artists are turning to devices that surround our everyday lives and using them as their props, their sets, and mediums to make performance work. This screening program shows a wide range of performances either made in front of the camera, to document the actions or manipulating found footage of others performing. Performing is all about the staging of the action and this selection of videos embraces the exciting diversity of just that.
The videos in this program are part of a Berlin/Chicago Exchange between Eric Fleischauer and the one-year art space MMX Open Art Venue in Berlin.
Work by Andrew de Freitas, Elizabeth Wurst, Eric Fleischauer, Jon Rafman, Zachary Fabri, Inez de Vega, Michelle Teran, Nicolas Provost, Jacob Tonski, Cari Freno, Hugh Walton, Ben Kinsley, Jesper Just and David Sherry.
