Katherine Desjardins: Freight (24HRS/25DAYS)
@ New Capital
3114 W Carroll, Chicago IL 60612
Opening Saturday, December 8th, from 7:30PM - 11:59PM
A large-scale projection on to slow-moving cargo trains
New Capital is excited to announce 24HRS/25DAYS, our final exhibition of the 2 year program at 3114 W. Carroll. The exhibition celebrates transformations, the work that all of us have yet to produce, and everything that is not yet known.
From November 16th at 6pm to December 12, at 11:59 pm, New Capital will be open to everyone 24 hours a day, featuring continuous programming in the upstairs and downstairs galleries, and in the back train yard. Over 100 works with varying durations will be produced over the course of the exhibition, including individual works, performances, classes, dinners, as well as other exhibitions, and many forms to be developed.
Audience may visit anytime to view and/or participate in the process of the exhibition.
More than an impossible quest for chaos or democratic organization for its own sake, 24HRS/25DAYS seeks to create a context in which individuals can collectively, and simultaneously occupy the (often competing) creative roles of their choosing.
The first artist reception will be held on Saturday Nov 17th, from 6pm – 9pm. Detailed scheduling can be found on our website, newcapitalprojects.com. We will continue accepting proposals and scheduling works through the duration of the exhibition.

Though some events will feature a bar, a majority of the exhibition is b.y.o.b., there is also a continuous community potluck. If you are inspired to, please bring items to share.
When entering and exiting, please be careful to shut the gate, and despite desolate appearances, be respectful of the neighborhood 🙂
Although the exhibition can never be experienced in its entirety, public contributions of documentation will be included in our 2013 catalogue. Please submit!
We look forward to seeing you!
Ben Foch and Chelsea Culp
