Neighborhood Performance Art
Wednesday, December 3rd at 7:00 pm, $7-10
For the third year in a row, The Nightingale is delighted to host an end of year screening for our neighborhood’s beloved outdoor performance series. Out of Site Chicago curates cutting edge unexpected encounters in public space. OoS support contemporary performance artists to create new work that engages directly with the public. Artists are invited to select sites that resonate with their practice. The mission of OoS is to bring cultural experiences to everyone facilitating unique surprises for people as they come home from work, curating work that brings joy and transports people out of their daily routines to create a moment of reflection and wonder in their lives.
This screening will include nine short videos of each public performance from 2014.
Including work by:
Emilio Rojas (Featured International Artist from Canada)
Elena and Erin
Free Air: Regin Igloria and Amy Sinclair
Blushing Poppy Productions – Nicole Legette
Ginger Krebs and Sara Zalek
Documentation team for 2014 was Jamie Gannon, Laura Moore, Josh Perez and Emerson Sigman. All videos will be edited by Laura Moore.
In May 2012, Laura Moore graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, LA, with a Bachelor or Arts degree, concentrating in New Media and Animation. Shortly after graduation she moved to Chicago, IL, in pursuit of working professionally as a videographer and video editor. She has freelanced for several companies and organizations since coming here, such as Chicago Artists Coalition, Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery, and Out of Site. Her favorite type of work is documenting public art performances. The space between the artist, the viewer, and the documenter becomes intertwined and complicated, creating a richer, more brilliant experience. She feels it challenges her as a videographer to instinctually capture each moment the best way possible.
