The Arts Club of Chicago, Chicago, IL, November 16, 2016, curated by Janine Mileaf
In lieu of an artists talk for our 2016 exhibition The Arts Club of Chicago at 100, we presented a performative deconstruction of the exhibition take-away publication, Enactment. The publication centered around a one-sided flexi record featuring an original dance track merging historic lectures by Jean Dubuffet and Gertrude Stein, originally presented at the Arts Club. Using voice generation software, the track re-animated these iconoclastic texts over a club-ready house track. For the performance, we stretched the record out with real-time sampling, improvisation, and activation of the exhibition space.
