1-5pm    Audible Gallery at Experimental Sound Studio
A composite of sound recordings from inside and outside the Cook County Jail, as well as a video pan of the 25’ jail wall examine the blurry line between the inside and outside of the largest single-site jail in the country. Situated within a working class immigrant neighborhood in Chicago and the artists’ native community, Gaspar has been recording the social behaviors and informal architectures surrounding a place of incarceration to make visible the politics of location. In this piece, she juxtaposes the acoustics of the interior life of detention alongside a local summer carnival that takes place outside the jail wall every year. The artist negotiates the psychological experience of of the carceral state and the effects of mass incarceration. It includes an excerpt from a series of personal conversations and interviews with Adolfo Davis by his collaborator, Elyse Blennerhassett. Convicted at the age of fourteen, Davis is currently serving a mandatory life sentence.

Dickinson/Hood - 'Coming in from the North' - Part 1: Listening for home with my ears I am listening. >
September 30, 2016
9pm    Audible Gallery at Experimental Sound Studio
In 2006, Joan and Mildred met at a party and through friendship and an evolving series of conversations and activities––movement-based performance, video and audio field recordings, historical research, photography and writing––generated something like a collaboration that looks something like a palindrome with Mildred's train as the central mode of conveyance for wide-ranging ideas about narrative, place, nomenclature, travel, race and class, and freight. Coming in from the North––a performance in two parts and one installation––presents a portion of that collaboration.
