TOGETHERISM
A series of exhibitions and events about the work of groups
September 7 - November 15, 2019

Public Media Institute, ArchiteXX, Tender House Project, Justseeds & McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum present a series of exhibitions and programming examining the creative work of groups.


Seeking useful models to inspire experimental infrastructures for culture and politics, this multi-pronged festival gathers artists, activists, architects, buddies, brewers, chefs, journalists, criminalized youth, satanists and many others to work through what it is to work together.

Togetherism examines creative experiments with horizontal, collective art-making and organizing. Named with a playful neologism, the festival avoids constraining the terms of collectivity while centering the common deviance among our groups: we work together. The series is inspired by (and hopes to inspire) forms of radical, liberating practice where collective creative work rethinks and reforms the ways of living in society. The festival will feature the work of both historical and contemporary groups from Chicago and beyond. Not quite utopian, each group serves variously as a proof of concept, a failure, a new direction to pursue, an example of how we can change.

Some highlights include:

  • The launch exhibition of a new Detroit-based collective, Sex Militant

  • NOW WHAT?! ADVOCACY, ACTIVISM & ALLIANCES IN AMERICAN ARCHITECTURE SINCE 1968 - Exhibition and programming with radical feminist architecture collective ArchiteXX

  • Tender House Project at the The McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum -an exhibition and programming series with Mejay Gula of Tender House Project + music, art and ecology groups.

  • Three Justseeds Exhibitions - marking the semi-annual gathering of the international group of activist printmakers, exhibitions will be held at Co-Prospertiy Sphere, Uri Eichen, and In These Times

  • A special InCUBATE reunion Sunday Soup to launch a new Co-Prosperity Beer from Marz Brewing with sales going towards the creation of a grant to support artist and activist groups

  • The release Lumpen 135, a publication featuring the work of such contemporary and historical groups such as Related Tactics, Critical Art Ensemble, Camel Collective, Temporary Services, Justseeds, Postcommodity, BijaRi, Videokaffe, and many others.

  • The re-launch of Temporary Service’s Groups and Spaces Website.

  • Nicole Marroquin’s Loud Mud project with criminalized youth in the Youth Incarceration Alternatives Initiative on view at Envisioning Justice at Sullivan Galleries + broadcast on Lumpen Radio

Collection of group terminology from “Group Work”- the book by Temporary Services serves as reference for the festival.

Now What?! Panel 4: PANEL–Activism Within & Against the Biennial Complex

The Chicago Architecture Biennial has since its inception been supported by petrochemical dollars. It’s not the only biennial either to have ties to the unsavory people and companies that sit at the commanding heights of the economy; recently artists successfully used a biennial boycott to oust Warren B. Kanders (whose company manufactures tear-gas used on the border) from the board of the Whitney Museum. Join us for a discussion of the politics of biennials with experts and activists where ask ourselves difficult questions about the place of activist practices within biennials, and talk about how architects can best use the opportunity of Biennials to best work toward a more just world.

Admission is free

Featuring Nick Korody and Joanna Klopenburg (Adjustments Agency), Keefer Dunn (The Architecture Lobby - Chicago), Nick Wylie ( Co-Prosperity Sphere), and more!

Sunday Soup Reboot and Co-Prosperity Beer Release

3:00 PM15:00

Sunday Soup Reboot and Co-Prosperity Beer Release

THIS SUNDAY

September 22nd

Co-Prosperity Sphere

Admission is $5-$15

3 to 5 PM

Sunday Soup is a community fundraising meal project initiated by InCUBATE (Abigail Satinsky, Bryce Dwyer, Roman Petruniak & Matt Joynt) and others in the Chicago art community, which was in operation from 2007-2010. It was a grassroots project to generate funds for artist initiatives and community projects through a grant raised by the meal. It inspired over 60 chapters across the world, all doing their own variations of the soup model.

For each meal, chefs and friends prepare a soup and accompanying dishes using local ingredients. The money from ticket sale becomes a grant. Diners vote on proposals for creative projects that are displayed at the meal. The project that gets the most votes is awarded the money.

This weekend's soup will be prepared by Won Kim of Kimski Chicago. Abby Satinsky & Matt Joynt will be there on behalf of the InCUBATE crew. The meal will also serve as a soft launch for Marz Brewing's Co-prosperity Beer — profits from the beer will fund an ongoing grant for art & activism projects. In true togetherism spirit, we need you to show up to help determine how to distribute the beer grant money in a way that best serves the community.

PROJECT PRESENTATIONS & PROPOSALS will be made by Marimacha Monarcha Press, Rebirth Garments/Radical Visibility Collective, Project Fielding & More. 

SEE YOU SUNDAY!

New album Devour out now on Sacred Bones

BLOODYMINDED
https://bloodyminded.bandcamp.com/
ITSÏ
https://soundcloud.com/itsi00

Margaret Chardiet was born and raised in New York City. As a founding member of the Red Light District collective in Far Rockaway, NY she has been a figurehead in the underground experimental scene since the age of seventeen.Devour marks the fourth full-length record from Margaret Chardiet’s project Pharmakon and her most intense output to date. Like her previous albums, Devour comes with a strong concept that is exorcised throughout the five demolishing tracks on the album, using imagery and language of self-cannibalism as allegory for the self-destructive nature of humans. Each of the five songs echoes a stage of grief associated with this cyclical chamber of self-destruction and the chaos surrounding us that leads us to devour ourselves in an attempt to balance the agony. The album was recorded by Ben Greenberg (Uniform) and is the first Pharmakon album recorded live in studio. The A and B sides were each recorded as a continuous take with vocals from start to finish, marking a totally new process for the artist that allows the ferocity and immediacy of her live performance to resonate throughout. Devour also explores new sonic territory, with denser electronics, groovier hooks, and moments of her most unhinged vocal deliveries to date. As one of the premiere vanguards of modern industrial and power electronics, Chardiet continuously pushes the genres and everyone involved in them, and with the release of Devour, she has once again changed the game.

12:00 PM12:00

Eco-Sensing Chicago River Works

McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum

99 Chicago Riverwalk, Chicago, IL 60601

Admission is free

Eco Sensing Chicago River Works connects the experience of walking along the river with mobile technology; listening and recording data as citizen scientists map the health of the city’s water. As you walk along the path, the sights and sounds of the river system open new awareness to the anthrophonic, biophonic, and geophonic sounds around us. Using the Chicago River Data Worksheet, sonic discoveries combine with light and temperature readings and observations of biodiversity of life and periods of activity and non-activity along the river.  


Riverworks is an interdisciplinary collaboration of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago Eco Design Students with Chicago Organizations that examines the creative possibilities of aquatic bioacoustics and the potential for new approaches to the data driven conservation of urban global river systems. River Works imagines immersive spaces of community engagement with listening labs, field recordings, soundmaps, performances and installations that raise understanding of river health and aquatic and human biodiversity and coexistence. Eco Sensing increases the critical value of water wisdom and elevates the importance of river systems to urban health. Explore the value of acoustics and technology in contributing towards environmental awareness and engagement and Chicago’s new Eco Cruise.

Deep Time: Chicago River Walk About It & Water Taxi Tour
Sep
15
1:00 PM13:00

Deep Time: Chicago River Walk About It & Water Taxi Tour

Meet at:

McCormick Bridgehouse and Chicago River Museum

99 Chicago Riverwalk, Chicago, IL 60601

Deep Time Chicago will host a “Walk About It,” tour and discussion focused on the ways in which we (humans) have shaped, altered, and harnessed the Chicago River and the waterways of the city and Illinois to serve our purposes. We will be joined by Rachel Havrelock, an expert in, and advocate for, issues surrounding water use in the Great Lakes Region. She is the founder of Freshwater Lab, a humanities-based initiative focused on research, teaching, and public awareness about the Great Lakes. We will also discuss Deep Time’s work on the Mississippi River with their project Confluence Ecologies that addresses the human and non-human forms of contemporary life found in the regionally significant meeting place formed by two great rivers, the Ohio and the Mississippi in southern Illinois.

The tour will meet at the Bridgehouse Museum at 1PM for introductions. The group will then proceed to the Chicago Water Taxi dock at the Chicago Riverwalk for a ride to Ping Tom Park and back (round trip tickets are $10, or one way are $6). As the boat heads south, our Walk About It tour group will lead a peaceful takeover of the water taxi to continue our discussion of downtown Chicago’s relationship with the river, sites of industry on its banks, and the future“78” neighborhood: the formerly abandoned land known as Rezkoville that was home to wild urban nature and a homeless encampment, ending at the Ping Tom Park dock situated between two of the city’s historic bascule bridges.

Deep Time Chicago is an art/research/activism initiative whose goal is to explore humanity as a geological agency, capable of disrupting the earth system and inscribing present modes of existence into deep time. They periodically host “Walk About It” tours, which have brought together people at sites all over the city to discuss the effects of the human built environment and human-made change in the age of the Anthropocene, the geologic era defined by human-made changes.

Rachel Havrelock is the founder and director of the UIC Freshwater Lab, a humanities-based initiative focused on research, teaching, and public awareness about the Great Lakes.  The Freshwater Lab sponsors summits that bring researchers, elected officials, and water professionals together for transformative dialogue; offers courses and training that treat the lakefront and its communities as living labs; and fosters connections between leaders from the Great Lakes and other watersheds through water diplomacy. She is also Associate Professor of Jewish Studies and English at the University of Illinois at Chicago and author of River Jordan: The Mythology of a Dividing Line (University of Chicago Press, 2011).

Togetherism This project is part of Public Media Insititute’s Fall programming festival Togetherism, which  examines creative experiments with horizontal, collective art-making and organizing. The series is inspired by (and hopes to inspire) forms of radical, liberating practice where collective creative work rethinks and reforms the ways of living in society. The festival will feature the work of both historical and contemporary groups from Chicago and beyond. Not quite utopian, each group serves variously as a proof of concept, a failure, a new direction to pursue, or an example of why “we” can change.

PANEL: ADVOCATING & AGITATING: WOMEN-LED ORGANIZATIONS

Featuring: Chicago Women in Architecture, the history of the CARYATIDS, and the Illinois chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects.

We are a cross-generational group of academics and practitioners, and our organization is open to all women-identifying people, allies, and those beyond the binary. We believe that seeds established in the academy and adopted in practice, are outdated models which perpetuate myths and unsustainable trends in the personal, private, and workplace group experience and public, client perception.

Tender House Project: Demonstrating the Cultural Activation of Chicago’s Bridgehouses

Tender House Project: Demonstrating the Cultural Activation of Chicago’s Bridgehouses

Opening Reception : Sept 12th 5:00-7:00pm

Featuring a performance with Ben LaMar Gay

Exhibition Dates:  September 12 - November 3, 2019 

Location : McCormick Bridgehouse and Chicago River Museum

99 Chicago Riverwalk, Chicago, IL 60601

Open Hours: 

Thurs 12:00 AM to 7:00 PM 

Fri-Mon: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Tender House Project works to realize the latent potential of Chicago’s iconic yet overlooked bridgehouses, proposing that this hidden infrastructure is a cultural asset that will breathe needed life into the Chicago River. 

In collaboration with Togetherism, a two-month festival of artists groups curated by Public Media Institute, eight  Chicago-based groups will creatively activate the Michigan Avenue bridgehouse and surrounding riverwalk areas. 

Exhibited work will feature design proposals from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Master of Architecture program and design proposal submitted by the public. The result contributes toward a city-wide strategy of highlighting the Chicago River as a cultural corridor. With 70 bridgehouses spanning 13 miles of the Chicago River and having direct access to 15 neighborhoods, these underutilized buildings will be vital to fostering a connected and culturally celebrated Chicago.

BEN LAMAR GAY CONCERT AT THE BRIDGEHOUSE

Chicago Artist, Ben LaMar Gay will perform two concerts presented by International Anthem. On September 12th, Ben will engage audiences and the public by playing both inside and outside of the bridgehouse.  

Ben LaMar Gay is a composer and cornetist who moves components of sound, color, and space through folkloric filters to produce brilliant electroacoustic collages. The Chicago native’s true technique is giving life to an idea while exploring and expanding on the term Americana. Inspired by the vibrant experimental music scene of Chicago, and a three-year residency in Brazil, Gay collaborates with some influential figures in the world of music, dance, and visual arts including George Lewis, Itiberê Zwarg, Onye Ozuzu, Qudus Onikeku, Nicole Mitchell, Jeff Parker, Catherine Sullivan, Mike Reed, Joshua Abrams, Celso Fonseca, Tomeka Reid, The Black Monks of Mississippi, Bixiga 70 and the Association of the Advancement of Creative Musicians. His musical influences derive from his collection of experiences in all of the Americas and the gathered data channeled by technology and its amplifying accessibility. Embracing international vision while remaining true to his roots, Gay’s creative output aligns with the honest notion that he only knows how to be a man from the South side of Chicago

http://www.intlanthem.com/

On Weds Oct 9, 9:30 - 11:30 AM, LaMar Gay will also perform a second performance, a duet with the live sounds of the moving bascule bridge during a scheduled bridge lift. 

Ben LaMar Gay’s performances are presented by International Anthem

Background

Returning to the McCormick Bridgehouse Museum, Tender House Project is led by Mejay Gula, Chicago based civic designer, curator, and lecturer whose work highlights value of forgotten buildings and spaces in the city.

Togetherism examines creative experiments with horizontal, collective art-making and organizing. The series is inspired by (and hopes to inspire) forms of radical, liberating practice where collective creative work rethinks and reforms the ways of living in society. The festival will feature the work of both historical and contemporary groups from Chicago and beyond. Not quite utopian, each group serves variously as a proof of concept, a failure, a new direction to pursue, or an example of why “we” needs to change.

SEX MILITANT
Sep
6
to Sep 7

SEX MILITANT

Sex Militant is a conviction, action, and coalition developed by Satanic iconoclast Jex Blackmore in collaboration with a collective of artists and activists committed to sexual revolution and liberation through performance, advocacy, and direct action. In a premiere exhibition hosted by Co-Prosperity Sphere, Sex Militant, investigates the uncomfortable relationship between eroticism and state-violence, and considers the aesthetics of resistance and collective organizing as a means of social, sexual, and political liberation. Over the past five years, Blackmore has presented her ideas challenging theocratic moral policy on national news, documentary film, in classrooms, and in public spaces. She has been labeled a radical terrorist, feminist icon, and religious heretic. In this new work, Blackmore responds to the framework of respectability politics, counterculture fetishization, and the sin of apathy in the context of collective revolutionary actions. A departure from political street theater, Blackmore works with the collective to develop an immersive space which layers durational performance, sound, and protest art that creates a live interactive spectacle to encourage viewers to consider unacknowledged acts of resistance and submission. 

The two-night event opens with an evening of durational performance and multi-media installation and closes with a participatory ritual performance the following night. Those who would like to attend the ritual performance must RSVP in advance. The ritual will center on healing and collective power, providing a balance to the tension and aggression expressed during the opening night. 

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2019 SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2019

ABOUT JEX BLACKMORE

Jex Blackmore is best known for her performances in public spaces ranging from the steps of state capitols to outside women’s health clinics. Her work, which is focused on the relationship between moral religious rhetoric, sexuality, and political policy, takes aim at institutions of social and sexual oppression. She has been featured in numerous publications such as TIME, Vanity Fair, Washington Post, NPR, Cosmopolitan, and Salon. In 2015, she organized the largest Satanic gathering in history to unveil The Satanic Temple’s Baphoment monument, which was featured on CNN’s “This is Life with Lisa Ling.” Her reproductive healthcare advocacy has ranged from disrupting anti-choice demonstrations using gallons of milk, writing about her personal abortion experience in the viral blog entitled “Unmother,” and debating the Westboro Baptist Church. Her work is featured in the Magnolia Picture’s documentary, Hail Satan?, which was an official selection at Sundance 2019. www.jexblackmore.com 

ABOUT SEX MILITANT

Sex Militant is a project developed by a collective of artists and activists committed to sexual revolution and liberation through performance, advocacy, and direct action. To be Sex Militant is to be fiercely committed to the advancement of sexual and reproductive liberation.

Radical Visibility Collective 2d Debut Winter Collection/Album

The Radical Visibility Collective, led by Sky Cubacub of Rebirth Garments , Compton Q, and Jake Vogds, is designing an immersive and accessible fashion performance. Their vision for queer disabled futurism will manifest in live performers wearing a entirely new second collection of winter wear, all moving to an original, multi-collaborative sophomore album that invites folx with visual impairments to the show. All of the lyrics will be audio descriptions that talk about what the models are wearing, their dance moves and the models’ identities described in the model’s own words.

In Spring 2018, the collective worked together on their first collection in a month-long residency with the Evanston Art Center. They debuted their first collection at the Chicago History Museum in March alongside other talented queer designers with incredible success, noted by Paper Magazine to be “a pioneering, wholly inclusive and immerse fashion experience.” The performance welcomed a little over 300 people to the bright colors, exuberant fabrics, and innovative designs that encapsulate radical visibility.

http://www.papermag.com/radical-visibility-collective-2562641347.html

If you miss the show, do not worry!- To document the show, we will create both a music video and a zine. The music video will encapsulate the space and performance with closed captioning, and the zine will show photographs and lyrics collaged together with an accompanying CD of music to provide audio descriptions, so people can continue to experience our vision for radical visibility.

Togetherism: Call for Submissions
Aug

8:00 AM08:00

Togetherism: Call for Submissions

This fall, Lumpen Magazine will release a publication as part of the “Togetherism” programming season. The publication, too, is a collaborative and experimental project. 

Togetherism examines creative experiments with horizontal, collective art-making and organizing. Work done in groups provokes us to consider other social forms than the established. Group work challenges conventions of value and authority in art and society. 

We are seeking submissions from group members (current or former), organizers and thinkers that can address the following questions: 

How can collaborative work be liberating, radical, nurturing, or a form of coping and survival?

What does it mean to work collectively in the time of isolated, individualized labor in the arts and beyond? Why do groups come together, and how do they fall apart?

Everyone and all formats are encouraged. For more prompts or information please reach out to Marina Resende (marina@publicmediainstitute.com) or Nora Catlin (nora.e.catlin@gmail.com). 

Please send a proposal through the submission form by Friday, August 9.

Final submissions are due August 1, 2019.

Art Jam: South Fork Edition

- Maggie Kubley performs excerpts from “Safety Coffin,” which invites audiences to explore feelings regarding death through original music, installation pieces, video and various performance mediums.

- Jennifer Ligaya presents an installation as part of the “Ligaya Project(s),” which uses visual/graphic, sound, and text research and exploration as tools archiving individuals’ ancestral knowledge systems in order to access languages at their root.

-Baudouin Saintyves presents excerpts from “Shapes of Emergence,” which integrates an orchestrated live music performance and his current physics lab experimentation in fluid dynamics and electronic music controllers and softwares.

Bitchin Bajas
The BITCHIN BAJAS are flowing through Co-Pro, so chill and purdy. Today’s electronic/drone/ambient household name BITCHIN BAJAS started as a humble synthesized solo outlet before morphing into the powerhouse trio made up of Cooper Crain, Dan Quinlivan and Rob Frye that we all know and love today. Pushing far past the walls and bridges of our sonic universe and synthesizing sights and sounds of distant worlds, Drag City's finest are ready to bless Chicago with a night of aural-cellular growth.

Axis: Sova
AXIS:SOVA reports for a meeting of the beast within, bringing good, odd vibes to resonate through the night. At its origin, AXIS: SOVA existed primarily as a solo affair for Chicago guitarist BRETT SOVA, his savage guitar and voice accompanied only by a blown out drum machine - the Rhythm Arranger. Since then, the AXIS:SOVA's live experience has evolved, expanded, and contracted. No matter the lineup, it consistently fries ears and minds with vivid guitarisms fully gone off.

Brokeback
A sense of place has been essential to the music of BROKEBACK since guitarist/bassist Douglas McCombs first launched the project in 1995. Each album develops with exacting detail, revealing McCombs’s gift for dialing in the essence of a mood, feeling, or distant locale with a handful of reverb-laden guitar tones, elegant and sustained, strategically placed and sparingly deployed. The instrumental landscapes he creates on Illinois River Valley Blues are utterly transportive, evoking familiar open-frontier soundtracks and charting out new sonic territory.

Musical Tracing Ensemble
MUSICAL TRACING ENSEMBLE is a contingent of musicians led by fearless leader AARON M. OLSON (The Rests, L.A. Takedown). The premise of the MUSICAL TRACING ENSEMBLE is as simple as it is strange: all musicians’ headphones are dialed into one outputting sound source, and they attempt to transpose whatever they hear with their own instrument off-the-cuff and on-the-fly. Hop on this journey with us; don't worry, we'll hold your hand.

Chicago No Wave

7:00 PM19:00

Chicago No Wave

Join us May 4, 2019 at the Co-Prosperity Sphere for a special exhibition and evening of performances by founders and participants of the Chicago No Wave scene of the 1990s.

Chicago No Wave was typified by abstraction, noise, abrasion, nihilism, black humor, intensity, chaos, surrealism and experimentation. The sights and sounds of this lesser known part of Chicago’s cultural history will be shared in this one night freak out. We are excited in presenting one of the standard bearers of the No Wave sound, the Flying Luttenbachers, whose new album, Shattered Dimension was just released.

There will also be performances by musicians Bobby Conn, Azita, and DJ Le Deuce, whose careers were born in that era. A special reunion performance by D.O.G., and an inter dimensional live set by 0th.

An archive of fliers, zines, photos, videos and images from the Chicago No Wave scene from 1992-1999 that has been collected from participants and fans from the period and will be on display. Visual art by some of the scene’s cultural ambassadors: Jodi Mechanic, Kelly Kuvo, Rose and Shane Bugbee will also be exhibited.

Lumpen magazine will release a series of photocopied zines that showcases its coverage of artists and musicians during that era, a collection of written works by Lumpen Time contributors from that period, and a zine of reproductions of fliers and posters from the Chicago No Wave period.

Hasty Happenings

Hasty Happenings

Hasty Happenings is a one night only open participation exhibition that features artworks made in a matter of moments, hurried objects that were created with little care for perfect presentation. Everyone is welcome to participate, as long as it's with an artwork they make between learning of the show and the opening on Thursday, April 19.

Each piece in the exhibition is a snapshot of the momentary mental and emotional state assumed at the time of creation—tapping into the pleasure of completion and reverential observance of the tossed off.

Hasty Happenings is conceived of proposed and organized by Adrien Guadagnino with the support of Co-Prosperity Programming Council (CoProProCo) member Alex Chitty.

HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE:

1. Make an artwork! Hastily! Something brand new!*
2. Come to Co-Pro on Wednesday April 17. 5-10 to drop off/install your work**
3. Attend the opening Thursday April 7-10!
4. Pick up your piece before you leave!***

*Accepted artworks include:
a) works on paper able to be hung with blue tape on the wall
b) video pieces 3 minutes or fewer in mp4 brought on a thumb drive or emailed to be projected on a loop via VLC and projector
c) 3 minute performances (sign up form at the door)
d) sculptures to put on the floor or on a table
e) social things you do the night of the opening- no need to tell us about them :)

**last minute dropoff and hasty install is allowed on the night of the opening, April 18, 5-7pm
***artworks left will be collected by the curator Adrien Gaudagnino. They may be picked up by April 25
