THROUGHOUT CHICAGO IL .US
FREE and OPEN!
12 artists and curators from Mexico City, Mexico (physically) travel to Chicago
to participate in the upcoming (A) r4wb1t5 macro.Fest of digital arts, New Media
projects and realtime audio video performances!
Chicago’s fourth instance of the decentralized and distributed (A) r4wb1t5
macro.Fest consists of a string of New Media art events occurring each day from
April 5th through April 9th. Various alternative art spaces in Chicago will
function as hosts for these individually curated and connected r4wb1t5 micro.Fests.
Each micro.Fest is organized by individual curators based in Mexico City and
facilitated in Chicago by Amanda Gutierrez, jon.satrom and jonCates. This r4wb1t5
macro.Fest is a macro-expansion/explosion of previous smaller r4wb1t5 micro.Fest
This r4wb1t5 macro.Fest initiates a cultural exchange wherein Chicago-based
curators, organizers and artists will soon travel to Mexico City to develop
a sister r4wb1t5 festival. Artists, curators, organizers, facilitators and participants
gather for these free and open events comprised of live audio and video, media
art screenings, installations, and network based art in the discursive context
of r4WB1t5. Join the conversational hyperthreads of these dynamic exchanges
between Chicago and Mexico City!
