Ten x Ten 2017: Dual Practices: Prints and Record Release

The fifth and most conceptually broad iteration of Ten x Ten, ‘Ten x Ten 2017: Dual Practices’ brings together 10 notable Chicago artists who have robust practices in both visual art and music. By considering questions about boundaries and location, Ten x Ten 2017 will investigate Chicago neighborhood identities, urban change, and comfort in space and place.

 

Five artist pairs have been collaborating over several months to each create a two-part work that includes a song or audio piece and an 18” x 18” screen print. The results of these partnerships will be released with a concert and gallery exhibition at Experimental Sound Studio on Saturday, September 9th.The artists will perform excerpts from their collaborations and display their prints as well as other work.

OPTION: Lou Mallozzi

Lou Mallozzi presents a rare solo set of improvisations with turntables, CDs, mixer, microphones, and text. The set will be intertwined with questions, arguments and discussion posed by theorist and artist Seth Kim-Cohen. The result may be an improvised performance that contains its own interrogation, or an interrogation that improvises its own performance.
