Brain Frame 11

@ Heavy Gel

2335 W. Lake St., Chicago IL

Opening Saturday, March 23rd, at 8PM

You awake one morning from uneasy dreams to find yourself transformed in your bed into a giant insect. What has happened to me? you think. That evening, the hive mind calls you to a new location. Six of your brethren take the stage to enact their own creative transformations. One artist reads from a giant pad of paper, ripping each page as the story unfolds. Another draws a love interest with a skin disease, his artistry projected on a screen above him. A woman wears a coat; a man wears a thong; a trumpeter blares staccato notes in an unknown key. BRAIN FRAME, you hear yourself intone. Expanded comics. Expanded minds.

IMPORTANT: Brain Frame has moved to a new location! This show will be at Heavy Gel [], a new artists studio and resource center. Located on Lake Street around the corner from Western, it’s a short walk from the Damen or California Green Line stops, or the Western or Damen bus lines. Street parking abounds.
