Thessia Machado in Newcity’s “Art Top 5”

Our current exhibition, Thessia Machado: Toward the Unsound was listed in Newcity’s Art Top 5 for February, 2019.

Click here to read the full story.

Toward the Unsound presents sculptural works by the New York based visual artist whose practice is deeply influenced by legacies of experimental sound performance and a deep care for found technology. The exhibition includes site-specific installations, designed for the particular sonic and architectural footprint of The Arts Club. Sounding and visual works are presented together in counterpoint–each contributing to, reflecting upon, and infiltrating the other. A catalogue, designed by Sonnenzimmer, was published on the occasion of the exhibition. It features an essay by the curator Jenna Lyle and a sound appendix with studio recordings of the works in the show. We hope that you’ll stop by to look and listen!

Thessia Machado’s installations and video pieces have been exhibited in New York, London, Philadelphia, Paris, Amsterdam, Dublin, Berlin and Athens. She has been awarded residencies at Homesession, Barcelona, the NARS Foundation, NY, I-Park, MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, the Irish Museum of Modern Art and the Vermont Studio Center and is a recipient of fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts, The Experimental Television Center, The Bronx Museum, and the American Academy in Berlin. In 2017 she was a recipient of an Artists Grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.

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.
