The Nightingale and Hyde Park Art Center present: Is Chicago, Is Not Chicago
Thursday, September 10, 2020, free with RSVP,
Alongside animated shorts selected by Stephanie Graham for Boundary at Hyde Park Art Center.
Programmed by Emily Eddy and Jesse Malmed
a drive-in with no feature, a decentered and oneiric midwest — speculative if incoherent — filled with the atmospheres of a time out of time.
They say “these strange times” and emails wish us well. We enter each other’s homes without leaving ours; we take to the streets even as there are fewer places to go; urgency, emergency and crisis collide with new soporific cycles. Like trying to research the untraceable quotation that “the closer you look at things, the less you see,” those slant truths aren’t scant, but they may be to easier to trace at the boundaries (which reveal themselves to be anything but) than in the conical middle. Join us in the immediate vicinity of placelessnesses: Is Chicago (Not Chicago); is a movie, is not a movie; is the Nightingale, is not the Nightingale.
