To mark the occasion of Artists Run Chicago 2.0 at the Hyde Park Art Center, Roman Susan is grateful to revisit Delight by Joelle Mercedes and Amina Ross. This work was first shared at Roman Susan as a part of the exhibition twinskin in November 2016. Delight is a single channel video of 5 minutes and 59 seconds duration, with camerawork by Ladan Osman. Delight will be on view from the street in a 24/7 loop at 5020 S Cornell Ave in Hyde Park from September 1 to November 1, 2020 and projected after dark at 1224 W Loyola Ave during the evenings of September 3 to September 6, 2020.
twinskin – a collaborative project by Joelle Mercedes and Amina Ross – has performed across Chicago and the internet, making magic in DIY punk spaces, dance studios, and gay nightclubs. Work from twinskin will be a part of Foundation, a new community-hosted art collection featuring artists from each year of Roman Susan programming from 2012 to present.
