Artist Talk: Jenny Kendler & Brian Kirkbride

Event Date: October 5
Time: 6:00 p.m.

Join artists Brian Kirkbride and Jenny Kendler for the public presentation of their new collaborative project, a year in the making—The Playhead of Dawn. The artists will give a talk and field questions, providing deeper insight into the many entanglements behind this poetic, technically ambitious work, which interweaves ecology, bird migration, extractive economics and globalization. Following the talk, a performance of experimental music by Kirkbride will sonically re-interpret the data and sound present in the over 250,000 citizen-science recordings of bird song that make up Playhead’s 24-hour-long score.

Please plan to arrive early to experience the work in the The Arts Club’s garden prior to the program at 6pm.

This event is free and open to the all. If you have any questions about accessibility to the space, please email information@artsclubchicago.org or call 312.787.3997.

Tickets are free. Please reserve them through this link.

Behind the Scenes of “A Home for Surrealism”

This year, Sixty Inches from Center—a non-profit art publication that focuses on narratives outside of the mainstream—is partnering with Art Design Chicago, a city-wide initiative that illuminates the legacy of art and design that’s embedded in Chicago’s history and culture. As editorial partners in this effort, we’re working with them to to elevate the stories of Chicago’s lesser-known artists, designers, and creators, past and present, through comics, essays, interviews, podcasts, and videos. For the videos we’ve teamed up with On The Real Film to present short profiles that highlight the exhibitions, projects, and people who are showcasing these legacies in various ways.

For the first in this series, On The Real Film takes a behind-the-scenes look at the installation process for The Arts Club of Chicago’s 2018 exhibition A Home for Surrealism as Executive Director Janine Mileaf explains the origins of the show and discusses the planning and preparation required to make the exhibition possible. A Home for Surrealism acknowledges the deep presence of surrealism in Chicago through the work of artists Gertrude Abercrombie, Dorothea Tanning, John Wilde, Julia Thecla, Harold Noecker, and Julio de Diego.
