The Other Room Series - May 2 & 3

Hey, blogspot readers, SouthSide would like to give you the exclusive heads up about an upcoming performance happening on May 2 and 3.

Intuit: The Center of Intutive and Outside Art (located 756 N. Milwaukee Ave) proudly presents its first event in "The Other Room Series" with two performances of 14 15 111 featuring some of the best alternative performing artists in Chicago - singer/songwriter/composer Daniel Knox and street photographer John Atwood on May 2 and 3, 2013 at 7pm.
14 15 111 is continuing the collaboration between these two artists which was first started during a formal engagement at Robert Wilson's Watermill Center last winter. This unique pairing is billed as "...a suite of music combining live instruments (synth, voice, percussion, two tubas, electric bass, violin, cello and a choir), pre-recorded material, and field recordings (featuring excerpts from Knox's
work with The Pushkin Theater in Moscow in 2012), all set to color video projection of footage shot by Atwood..."  The piece, blogspot readers, was written through circular influence: images provoking music provoking images and so on through many edits and developments. The final result will exhibit how both Knox and Atwood continued to push the boundaries of their respective mediums and previous work.

During this performance, Atwood's color photographs will also be on display.
Intuit defines 'intuitive and outsider art' as the work of artists who demonstrate little influence from the mainstream art world, and who instead are motivated by their unique personal vision. This definition includes art brut, non-traditional folk art, self-taught art, and visionary art.

Gallery hours: Tuesday - Saturday 11:00am - 6:00 pm, Thursday 11:00am -
7:30pm. Admission is $5. Intuit members and children under 12 are free.

Tickets are currently available for "The Other Room Series" 14 15 111 at  $15. Seating is limited to 75 persons per performance so SouthSide advises that you get your tickets now here -  http://www.art.org/2013/03/the-other-room-presents-daniel-knox-john-atwood/
