This event has been postponed.

A Single Perhap
Drawings, Sculptures, Sounds, Etc.

You have been hired to play your role in the community theater piece A Single Perhap during which you will be encouraged to extemporize around the themes of composition and improvisation. Seltzer, props and prompts will be provided. In lieu of pay, performers will receive exposure and an opportunity to derive meaning from a few bodies of work dancing in a mixed metaphor, constellation or syntactic shibilance.

The libretto begins:

I couldn’t find the emoji for semiotics. I attend the meting but realize that justice isn’t near the menu. I imagine a pair of pants like the inverted triangle of journaling: they unzip from the knee down; we unzip the first twelve minutes from the rest of the film. In an unstable accent: a roiling descent.

and ends at 4pm,

but will be open other times during the run of the exhibition.

Jesse Malmed works across video, performance, text, occasional objects, and their gaps and laps over and under. He has performed, screened, and exhibited widely at museums, cinemas, galleries, bars, and barns, including solo presentations at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Museum of Contemporary Photography, the Portland Art Museum’s Northwest Film Center, University of Chicago Film Studies Center, Sight Unseen, Microlights, and San Francisco Cinematheque. His platformist and curatorial (co-)involvements, engagements, and entanglements include the Live to Tape Artist Television Festival, the Nightingale Cinema, Western Pole, Trunk Show, the Artists’ Karaoke Archive, ACRE TV and whatever seems to be happening at 114A. Originally from Santa Fe, he earned his BA from Bard College and his MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is an Associate Adjunct Professor at UIC, a Lecturer at UWM and teaches in the Chicago Public Schools through CAPE.
