Jul 2nd 2022


@ Compound Yellow

244 Lake St, Oak Park, IL 60302

Opening Saturday, July 2nd, from 2PM - 6PM

On view through Friday, July 29th

You are invited by i/thee and Compound Yellow to the opening party for “Side Yard(s)”. This month-long exhibition will feature speculative models and drawings by our summer Astral Residents, i/thee and will act as an opportunity to provide feedback and share ideas as we generate drawings and plans to enrich and enliven the Side Yard as a performance and gathering space.

i/thee is a family and friends design collaborative with projects around the world. Our designs celebrate the co-sentience of everything in the environment; living and non-living; past and present; I and thee.

Where some wish to draw distinctions, we wish to shed light on what we all have in common: to demonstrate that the appearance of difference is an illusion. Within this universe, there are not many things but just one thing: one life, one love, one eternally temporary moment. The world is not made up of separate entities and forces that sometimes overlap; rather, all things are born from the same circle with one boundary—a perfectly overlapping venn diagram containing all there is.
Drinks and refreshments provided!

Hey friends of CY and the Side Yard Sounds series!

We are very excited to take some time this summer to imagine, design, dream, draw, and ideate together with fellow artists, musicians and neighbors! How can we enhance the experience of listening, learning, viewing and gathering at Compound Yellow’s side yard through the creation of public infrastructure to hopefully be built next year? Come by and see what i/thee, our current summer artists in Astral residency have proposed, give us your feedback and thoughts and add proposals of your own!

A catalogue of our communal ideas will be produced as a part of the residency! This event will take place in the gallery and is free to the public.

Hope to see you July 2nd, anytime between 2pm and 6pm, meet the design team i/thee in person, have some snacks and fun with us and STAY for the enchanting music of Sinner’s Friend! Sinner’s friend is an Old Time band with a percussive twist. From Chicago, its members are Claire Halpin (fiddle) Aron Packer (banjo) Michael Dinges (guitar) and Quinn Kearney (tablas).

Opening for Sinner’s Friend is multimedia artist Spencer Hutchinson who will be performing a 15-minute collaborative recital of experimental sound piece, “On Second Thought”, a sonic interpretation of Marcel Duchamp’s famous stool with a bicycle wheel utilizing an oscillating fan and a professional violinist whose name happens to be Tim Hager.

Tickets are $15, see event on CY facebook for details!
