Hot Wheelz Festival: Gothwerk

@ Hot Wheelz Festival


On view through Friday, September 18th

Join us virtually on September 14 as Hot Wheelz Festival presents work by their first curatorial resident:

Maggie Wong: Gothwerk
A collaborative effort by Morris Fox, Kyle Ozero, and Katherine Finkelstein

This residency is a constellation and reflection of this group’s conversations about power, reckoning, deep time, and the affordances of a goth orientation. These reflections vary from audio interviews, video work, timed photo displays, to virtual game rooms.

Hot Wheelz Festival is a new live art platform that hosts 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 takeover as well as engagements across different platforms (Instagram & Twitch). 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.
