This event has passed.
Tonight, we will walk from The Arts Club (201 E. Ontario St.) to the lakefront and back, listening to a downloadable or streamable soundtrack expanding our experience of the location with text, field recordings, and music. Please bring your smartphone if use one and the appropriate earbuds or headphones. If you don’t use a smartphone, we have a few mp3 players and headsets on hand as backups.
Before we set off for the lakefront, we will assist you in downloading the recording to compliment JeeYun Lee’s sound walk to your smartphone using this link. You may also feel free to use the audio player below.
We’re excited to walk and listen with you!
Evening Program : Performance
Convene at The Arts Club’s Garden at 6:00 pm
Pop-up Bar in Mobile Makers space 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Artist JeeYeun Lee’s work focuses on the Indigenous and working class history of the area. In collaboration with Roman Susan Art Foundation, Lee’s work in progress, Shoreline, will be an audio walk along the lakefront. She will contemplate this liminal space between land and water as simultaneously a public good, treaty violation, and strategy to suppress insurgence. The walk will feature audio recordings that incorporate treaties, lawsuits, traditional Korean folk songs, and Potawatomi language recordings by Kyle Malott, available to stream through a smartphone or a provided mp3 player. Following the walk, stay for a pop-up bar in the Mobile Makers Space.
