@ Hot Wheelz Festival


On view through Friday, October 30th

Join us virtually as Hot Wheelz Festival presents the last curatorial resident in their fall lineup:

Curated by DIVINE co-directors Ry Douglas and Sebastian Olayo with programming featuring Tati Rodriguez, Zullay Orozco, Jasmine Barber, Talia K. Wright, Mariah Emerson, Monique Marshaun, Front Porch Oracles, Kenyetta Johnson, Sommer Arielle Rodriguez, Dev Michael and Zola Chatman.

Curatorial statement:
RITUAL. Prayer is ritual. Community care is ritual. Expression is rital. Bathing is ritual. Silence is ritual. Enter into this collective ritual with us this week as we explore our individual selves and each other through multi-disciplinary community art making and art witnessing. Join us in deconstructing and healing the harm caused by organized religion. Come as you are, and practice this ritual.

Hot Wheelz Festival is a live art platform set out to burn rubber, speed up, slow down, dodge cones and redefine acceleration.
We host virtual week-long residencies for Chicago curators, spaces, and collectives to create live programming while loosely approaching the question, “How do we keep moving?”. Each residency includes a Hot Wheelz Festival website page takeover as well as engagements across our different platforms. Hot Wheelz believes live programming hinges on the idea of live experience for the audience, whether that’s watching a live stream, limited engagements with pre-recorded work, virtual reality, or an ever-changing web page.

Follow the Hot Wheelz Festival Instagram account (@hotwheelzfestival) for residency schedules and programming details.
