Lucky Pierre’s Precarity Happy Hour
@ Gallery 400 University of Illinois Chicago
400 S Peoria St, Chicago IL, 60607
Opening Thursday, July 14th, from 5PM - 7PM
Feeling the burden of student loan debt, unstable employment, precarious labor, and the pressures of making ends meet? As part of Gallery 400’s exhibition Precarity: Contingency in Artmaking and Academia Lucky Pierre would like to invite you to the Precarity Happy Hour. Over cocktails, music, conversation, and dancing to debt, Lucky Pierre will present creative interventions (meaning we’ll probably do stuff) around the issues raised in the precarity exhibition.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to enroll in Lucky Pierre Free University’s reading group “The Ceiling Has Been Leaking for 23 Years: Normalizing Precarity in a Neoliberal World.”
Group meetings will take place on Thursday, July 21st, 6:00 pm at Big Chicks – 5024 N. Sheridan Road, Chicago, IL, and July 28th, 6:00 pm at Skylark – 2149 S. Halsted Street.
Reading group participants will receive 3 course credits toward a fully unaccredited MFA!!!! Or, perhaps we’ll just buy you a beer.
LPFU is an ongoing collective imaginative education project working to create and learn together outside the institutionalized corporate higher education model. All are welcome.
