The Poetics of Haunting: An Evening of Activations

@ Sullivan Galleries

33 S State, 7th fl, Chicago, IL 60603

Opening Friday, December 8th, from 6PM - 8PM

On view through Friday, December 8th

As a closing celebration, eight artists use durational performance, film, and writing to weave themselves into the exhibition “Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness.” Join us for this evening of ephemeral encounters, interruptions, and reconfigurations which activate Weerasethakul’s explorations of the materiality of melancholy, the intimacy of the mundane, and the ways bodies remember.
