Talk with Nicole Garneau

I have posted excerpts from a dialogue I had with Nicole Garneau at the beginning of the year to my website in the “dialogues” section.

“From January 1 to December 31, 2005, Chicago based interdisciplinary artist Nicole Garneau engaged in a year-long performance project called HEAT:05 to mark the ten-year anniversary of the 1995 Chicago heat wave, during which 739 people died in a week. Garneau became interested in the subject after reading Eric Klinenberg’s book Heat Wave: A Social Autopsy of Disaster in Chicago, and many of the themes she explored during the year were inspired by this book.”

Nicole has documentation up from HEAT:05 at the Vespine Gallary in Plisen (1907 S. Halsted) through April 29th.

Nicole is also performing as a part of Thaw: A benefit for Links Hall on Thursday, April 27th. I helped curate the show for Links and I think there will be will be a fine collection of spring-like performances to wake you from your winter hibernation. The performances go until 10pm and there is music and dancing afterwards till 2am. Wao Bao and drinks.
