On Saturday, April 15, Rebuild Foundation will be hosting a daylong house music party at the Stony Island Arts Bank with sets by prominent local DJs who continue the legacy of the pioneering Godfather of House Music, Frankie Knuckles. Between sets, catch a sneak preview of Rebuild Foundation’s latest documentary, “My Frankie: Reflections on the Music and Life of Frankie Knuckles,” a short documentary, produced in partnership with Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, chronicling Frankie’s artistry and unique ability to curate liberatory space through sound.
Theaster Gates’ Rebuild Foundation is the proud stewards of the Frankie Knuckles Collection, a collection of over 4,000 vinyl and ephemera belonging to the Godfather of House Music undergoing digitization in partnership with the Frankie Knuckles Foundation.
Seating is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are unable to attend after confirming your RSVP, we kindly ask that you cancel your ticket to allow for other guests interested in attending to RSVP for the program.
