A collaboration between SAIC and the Shapiro Center, the Chicago Architecture Biennial, and Kunlé Adeyemi
Chicago native Sadie Woods has had a prolific career as a sound artist, deejay, and curator. For her Halloween performance at the ROCK installation she will be presenting new work that collects and remixes children's playground song. The songs have been pulled from the Smithsonian's Folkways collection. Woods will be playing musical selections that include themes of children's culture and ritual magic.
To close the performance, a light installation will be set up surrounding the rocks
Free to attend. Public event.
Designed by Kunlé Adeyemi as part of the Chicago Architecture Biennial, ROCK will be a pop-up pavilion—a public sculpture—that will eventually be installed in Montrose Beach.
Public programming for ROCK is created by Kate Dumbleton, Jameson Paige, Asha Veal Brisebois, Emily Monasterio, Minghui Huang, Gloria Wang, Paulina Budzioch from the SAIC Arts Administration and Policy program. The event is produced in partnership with The Earl & Brenda Shapiro Center for Research and Collaboration at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
