EXPO CHGO Kick-Off Program | Framing the Moment: On Music, Architecture and Improvisation

  • April 8, 2021 5:00 pm CDT

    This panel + performance premiered at 5pm CDT, Thursday, April 8. Please view the recording of the event above.

    Featuring David Brown (Artistic Director, Chicago Architecture Biennial), Ken Vandermark (Musician), Rosa Barba (Artist), and moderated by John Corbett (Gallerist, Corbett vs. Dempsey), this panel convenes thought leaders from visual art, music, and architectural backgrounds to discuss the ways improvisational techniques influence their diverse practices in the creation of visual, sonic, and constructed spaces. Panelists will explore how improvisational methods impact both collaboration and community.

    Included in the program will be a short improvised set performed by Ken Vandermark titled Proximity. The locations of the camera and microphone are meant to play on acoustic “depths of field,” and the piece was inspired by musician, filmmaker, and visual artist, Michael Snow.

    Presented in partnership with Chicago Architecture Biennial
