Fri March 21st, 2014 @ Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery / 1136 N Milwaukee Ave Doors at 6pm
For the launch of 3rd Language Issue #4: Never Satisfied we chart the multiplicity of forms in which craving and desire may be enacted, embodied, (dis)embodied, artistically subverted and queered through the act of performance, the aurality of sound and the screening of video works. 3rd language is a Chicago-based collective of artists and thinkers exploring and embracing difference, otherness and transgression. We name this distinctness, Queer. We are interested in a Queerness that emphasizes ambivalences and the shifting and questioning of boundaries. Our Queerness is rooted in our identification within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* spectrum. Through 3rd Language, we share work by contemporary artists through the creation of a quarterly publication and exhibitions.
This event is a 3rd Language and JRV MAJESTY Productions collaboration. Defibrillator is a wheelchair accessible space. If there are any questions or concern please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org / 3rdlanguage.com
