Robert Chase Heishman is a Chicago-based artist whose work explores the periphery, territory, architecture and construction of images. He received his Master of Fine Arts in 2012 from Northwestern University’s Art Theory & Practice program, and his Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2008 from the Kansas City Art Institute, double majoring in Photography and Art History. From 2003 to 2004 Heishman was Artist in Residence with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, during which he designed an original set for the dance, Split-Sides, a production that toured worldwide. In addition to Merce Cunningham, Heishman has collaborated with Sigur Rós, Radiohead, and many other artists – most recently co-directing two films for/with Iraqi-American artist Michael Rakowitz. His work is exhibited and screened nationally and internationally.
DJ, radio host, and record hunter, K.HSIA’s roots in soul, funk, and disco translate seamlessly into a love affair with classic and underground house. His sets showcase soulful and eclectic sounds, earning him regular spots in Chicago’s nightlife institutions. He hosts Sunday Record Club, an all vinyl radio show every third Sunday 12-2pm CST on Lumpen Radio 105.5FM.
Jackersize is a rotating cast of DJ’s spinning house, disco, soul, and other good things in Chicago. They host a vinyl-only dance party at a DIY loft venue in Lakeview, where the sounds of disco, synth-pop, house, and other early underground dance music are celebrated.
