Chicago, IL – North Branch Projects is pleased to present Performing Negotiations, an evening of performance works featuring Amanda Stefanski and Raena Mann, Kat Meyers, Paul Shortt, Rebecca Kling, Steven Aron, and Sophia Rizvi. The exhibition includes multidisciplinary and collaborative performances.
We negotiate to perform, and we perform to negotiate.
This exhibition creates a space for visual dialogue and offers interaction between artists and participants of diverse personal identity regarding past and present circumstance, daily life and ritual, sexuality, gender, race, and religion. Negotiation is experienced through interactions and realized through personal reflection. Our experiences may be uniquely our own, yet negotiation is necessary.
The exhibition exists on the evening of September 28th at North Branch Projects, located four blocks west of the Kimball Brown Line stop, #81 Lawrence and #82 Kimball Bus lines.
North Branch North Branch is an independently run project space located in Albany Park that serves as a community bookbinding facility. The space provides an outlet for exploring the creative process in a neighborhood where few resources exist for the arts. There are two major components to the space:
The first is an ongoing community binding project that serves as the foundation for all of the work being created. Free to all, these gatherings have participants working on a collaborative hand-made book archive, binding individuals together quite literally in a group workshop setting.
The second is an entrepreneurial venture that funds the majority of the community binding efforts. Various book-making workshops are held in the bindery and custom-made books and related objects are sold in conjunction with the bindery’s goals of promoting art to the general public.
