Hot Wheelz Festival presents “In My Room,” a five-day live art exhibition curated by resident Afriti Bankwalla featuring work by Ted Bourget, Aza Greenlee and Jackie Margolis.
“In My Room” explores the way artists grapple with and track their evolving identity over time. Delving into this motif through works that range from video games to art books, this exhibit strives to illuminate the performance that can be found in everyday objects. New content will be regularly added throughout the week.
All work and programming will be hosted at hotwheelzfestival.com/current-residency.
ABOUT HOT WHEELZ FESTIVAL:
Hot Wheelz Festival is a virtual live arts platform that was founded in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. The platform is an annual residency for curators who are looking to explore liveness in virtual programming while loosely addressing the question, “How do we keep moving?” Each residency includes a five-day webpage takeover as well as engagements across our different social media channels. Hot Wheelz Festival believes live work hinges on the present experience of the audience, whether that’s watching a live stream, limited engagements with prerecorded work, virtual reality, or an ever-changing webpage. Through these varying responses a “roadmap” is being created on our archive page that represents a coalition of diverse live work in Chicago.
