Declarations of Contemporary Exhibition Opening
Come #declare your contemporary at the opening reception for "Declaration of Contemporary" -- on view Friday April 21 - Sunday April 23 at the Hairpin Arts Center.
This exhibition is a tool for developing different expressions of contemporary, ultimately pushing people to seek their own definition. By bringing together eleven artists with individual interests, we challenge the notion that being contemporary is a solid state. Instead, we propose that being contemporary is an ever evolving, emergent process.

HybridSalon is an bi-yearly, interdisciplinary evening of new performance work made in collaboration. Genesis provides Chicago based artists with opportunities to connect and network across disciplines, to explore risk and experimentation in their own artistic practices, and to investigate working in new models of collaboration. #HybridSalonChi
Genesis is an artistic partnership between Amanda Dunne Acevedo and Lindsey Barlag Thornton. Our work is often site-specific, collaborative, and experiential. We value experimentation and risk-taking in our practice, with a performance model that intentionally considers our audience and space.
