DFBRL8R + SITE/less + Hyde Park Art Center + {\}() {/}∆‡|{}{\} warmly invite you to:


Calling all Performance Artists in Chicago and beyond: Let’s GATHER! Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery has been dormant for awhile…but we’re back! We long to see familiar faces and make new friends. We warmly invite the Chicago Performance Art community to assemble and welcome some visiting artists, reconnect with colleagues, and make new friends. Mixer? Reception? Call it what you will…but be sure to attend if you are a Performance Artist or a lover of Performance Art.

Performance Artists UNITE! If you are an artist, presenter, or admirer, please come to GATHER and celebrate performance art. Join us in welcoming Tina Pētersone from Riga, Latvia, who is a Visiting Resident Curator through a partnership between the Jackman Goldwasser Residency Program at Hyde Park Art Center and CEC ArtsLink. She’s looking forward to interacting with the local performance art scene. Anonymous Boh+Devil Girl from the legendary Estonian performance art collective, Non Grata, will return to Chicago to present a visual art exhibition, Meatballs and World Politics. Defibrillator has a long and loving relationship with this unruly horde who performed at our inaugural exhibition *SPARK in 2010. We will also welcome Érika Ordos, the {\}() {\}∆‡!(){\} resident artist from Venezuela who is thrilled to return to Chicago to make and present work while meeting local performance artists.

In an effort to highlight the amazing Chicago performance art community, you are invited to add your work (of five minutes or less) to a video loop that we will project during the soirée. Simply bring a jump drive or in some way transfer your video to the computer (airdrop, email, whatever) and it will be added and played in the lineup. Note that we will provide some headphones, but image-based work will be best. Still images could be assembled as a slideshow and saved as a movie to add to the playlist. Please contribute!
