Water Music on the Beach will begin at 6018 North Kenmore within the Living Architecture exhibition, a site of immigration. At 12:30PM Balas and Wax lead us in a procession and discussion about the materiality of migration, a force which drove people from their homes in the process of creating Lake Shore Drive in the Edgewater neighborhood. From Ardmore Avenue, SPQ will lead us to Lane Beach at Thorndale Avenue and Sheridan Road for performances with Simon Anderson, Katinka Kleijn and Lia Kohl, Norman Long with Gwyneth Anderson and Sara Zalek, Steve Marquette with Aurora Nealand, James Singleton, and Paul Thibodeaux, and Carlos Salazar Lermont.
