“Okay campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties because it’s cold out there.”

Hello Ice Sculptors, Cloudwatchers, Piano Players, Ned the Heads, Prognosticator of Prognosticators and Weather Forecasters:

Groundhog day is approaching again. As much as it’s a day we anticipate, the movie has taught us if nothing else that we should be grateful for the day after. In response we’re programming a screening* of new works by artist parents for the Nightingale Cinema on the day after, February 3.

We are requesting your participation in making a video which is either:

  1. A remake of Groundhog Day, or a portion thereof
  2. A remake of another video that relates in some way to Groundhog Day

Working with parents or kids or a groundhog is encouraged, but not mandatory. A channel 9 microphone might be provided. Visit a bed & breakfast, eat in a diner, look up at the clouds brave a snowstorm without a coat, make a quick trip to Pennsylvania (or Woodstock, IL), stop by the bank, repeat the last thing you did, repeat another thing you did, get better with practice, break a pencil in half and see if it’s still broken the next day, learn a French poem, catch a kid, save someone’s life, get to know a stranger, cheat at Jeopardy. All of this and more could be yours.

Please let us know in one of the next few todays if you will participate and we’ll put your name on the talent roster.

Contact Kyle Schlie, Jesse Malmed or Danny Rubin with any questions.
*This screening is part of the exhibition “Division of Labor: Chicago Artist Parents” on view through February 14 at Glass Curtain Gallery.

MAINTENANCE
Dir. Adele Horne // 91 min // 2012

Cleaning house is one of the most private things we do in our homes, other than sex and arguments. Although the product of of a clean home is socially valued, the work required to achieve it is not. This film bears witness to the invisible labor that makes up a huge part of our lives, in a series of portraits of people cleaning. MAINTENANCE was the recipient of the 2013 Images Prize, the top award at Toronto’s IMAGES festival.
