Residency at The Perch

September 13 – September 20, 2014

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Over the course of a week long residency at The Perch's base of operations in Pilsen, artists Dan Paz and Jovencio de la Paz will enact a series of public and private gestures, engaging The Perch as both a domestic space and multi-faceted studio. Intended to operate as a parallel to the artists' 2013 ACRE residencies, Dan and Jovencio's time at The Perch is intended to complicate notions of retreat and provincial placidity associated with the rural artist residency by staging its quotidian double in the bustling city of Chicago. The artists invite the public to a number of social happenings, with public programming to include an evening of film screenings, a Pilsen ­based 5K walk/run, open house and concluding bonfire in The Perch's side garden.

 

This program is a part of the ACRE Residency

2014/­15 Exhibition Calendar.
