Opening Saturday, March 23rd, from 7PM - 10PM
hancock & kelly, Notes from Performing the Archive: Jackie Kennedy Flees the Scene of Her Husband’s Murder
hancock & kelly will be in residence at 6018 North for the IN>TIME festival, developing a new work for the upcoming project, goat island archive – we have discovered the performance by making it. Digging deep into the archive, they will be responding to Goat Island’s first work, Soldier, Child, Tortured Man (1987). Unearthing an architecture of athleticism, spectacle and domination, the original Goat Island work explores the militarization of daily living on an individual and societal level. hancock & kelly’s research-in-response will investigate power structures and points of resistance in relation to gender, toxic masculinity, complicity, and the white liberal project of cultural guardianship that is based on dubious positions of wealth and entitlement. Excerpts of the work-in-progress will be performed at 6018North at the end of the residency, before the work premieres at the Chicago Cultural Center.
