Vancouver artist Kyla Mallett is the latest to take up residency at ThreeWalls, a non-profit gallery in the West Loop. During this Chicago stint, she's putting together an exhibition to be called "Gossip" that will feature, not surprisingly, "bits of anonymous gossip" collected and then reperformed by the artist. That's where you come in. To gather the scoop that'll eventually comprise her work, Mallett and ThreeWalls have set up both a tip line (800/874-3185) and an email address (gossipthree-wallsorg). Consider this your chance to be part of "a potentially disruptive, pluralistic and ultimately feminist social practice" and then check out the exhibition; it'll open May 20th and run through late June.
