The Chicago Arts District in East Pilsen opens its galleries, artists studios and neighborhood shops for local people every second Friday of the month.
Last night, Rooms, a performance space, had its final performance from an ongoing series entitled, RITUAL NO. 10:WAVES. The ritual included two male performers--one was seated and one was pouring water from one bucket to the other. The seated man beat a steady dream-beat while the standing performer transitioned from a platform to the wooden floor. As pictured above, the individual poured water from one bucket to another for three steady hours.
Located down a tiny alley, the beautiful and intimate, Temple Gallery, had Jumpsuit and HardArt groop celebrate the release of their new LP "The Modern Brain". The photographer Bob Boettcher also had his photographs exhibiting at the Temple Gallery in conjunction with the musicians playing.
The Chicago Art Department, a vast building with workshops, gallery spaces and artist studios, opened its doors for the Hyde Park "Center Program" exhibition. This show was packed and incredibly awesome. Thirty artists were presented for gallery goers and the work ranged in mediums--painting, installation, photography, interactive works etc. To make sure you see the exhibit, visit the Chicago Art Department tomorrow, Sunday March 16th, 12-5pm.
A preview for next month includes: the Chicago Art Department's video screenings and the design work of SAIC students as well as PosterChildArt performing alongside the art of Jana Green at Temple Gallery, and as always, there are 30+ more spaces to explore in the Pilsen area on Second Friday.
Pilsen Art Walk is located on South Halsted and 18th streets every second Friday of the month from 6pm-10pm. You can pick up a map and information at 1821 S. Halsted St. that directs you around the neighborhood.
