In homage to the French predecessors of the Chicago painters featured in our exhibition Opening Reception: A Home for Surrealism, The Arts Club will host a Surrealist Soirée with The Neo-Futurists–an evening of performative poetry and interactive experience. As masters of ceremonies, “The Neos” will lead attendees through various embodied Surrealist ambulatory and textual explorations, and perhaps the occasional seance. At an intuitively selected moment, the poetic incantations of poet Ron Sakolsky and Chicago surrealist Penelope Rosemont.
This event is proudly part of Art Design Chicago, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art exploring Chicago’s art and design legacy, with presenting partner The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
This exhibition is sponsored by the Terra Foundation for American Art.
