Experimental dance company, The Seldoms reinvigorate their program by partnering with visual artists to create unique multidisciplinary art installations activated by choreographed bodies. Titled Toolbox, the program pairs a dancer with an artist to collaborate on a new combined work and share their processes, techniques, and creative values with one another. From this conversation, the dancemaker identifies one essential word that undergirds the visual artist’s practice, and translates it to a choreographic one. This performative installation and exhibition marks the Seldoms’ twentieth year of performance in Chicago.
Toolbox @ Twenty is curated and choreographed by Carrie Hanson, Director of the Seldoms in collaboration with Allison Peters Quinn, Director of Exhibitions at Hyde Park Art Center.
