Opening Saturday, April 1st, from 7PM - 2AM
Join us as we celebrate the ninth affordable renewal of our lease with a new series presenting the work of the folks behind the Nightingale. Over the course of the next year, we will treat each programmer to a mini-retrospective as a vehicle to ask you, our community, what this place has been and should become as it nears a decade in existence.
First up is heir apparent and Co-Director, Emily K. Eddy. She has been curating film, video, and new media works at the Nightingale since 2013 and is also a film, video, and digital media artist in her own right. This program spans the last four years and includes outside works that heavily inform Emily’s thematic and aesthetic interests.
Emily graduated from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013, where she received her Bachelors in Fine Arts. Combining many different forms of moving image, her work utilizes strategies of video diaries, archival practices, and experimental documentaries. Emily has shown work and programmed screenings at many venues in Chicago, as well as her hometown, Portland, OR, Reykjavik, Iceland, and various mid-western cities. Her most recent curated program, HOW TO FIGHT LIKE A GIRL will be presented at Echo Park Film Center in Los Angeles on March 24.
As always at Nightingale birthdays there will be cake, questionable punch, and dancing.
