Fridays, August 8 – September 26, 10:45 pm (before TML)
The Neo-Futurists and Salonathon Present: INFILTRATION, a collaborative project that connects underground artists throughout Chicago. On Friday nights in August and September, the Neo-Futurarium features work by artists who frequently share their work at Salonathon, a weekly performance series at Beauty Bar that aims to create a home for emerging underground and genre-defying art. Curators Jane Beachy, Joseph Varisco and Neo-Futurist ensemble member Malic White have put together a lineup of performers whose work explores “infiltration.” This fall, Salonathon artists collaborate with the Neo-Futurist ensemble on guerrilla theater pieces throughout the city that interrogate what it means to be a fringe artist in Chicago: Where is our home? Where do we want to explore? What does the art world look like when the underground infiltrates the mainstream?
