Join us at CAC's Annual Benefit,
TOMORROW!
Thursday, May 18.
With interactive art installations, food by outstanding Chicago restaurants, quirky entertainment, a silent auction with work by some of Chicago's most dynamic artists, and a possible dance-off, WORK IN PROGRESS is anything but your ordinary affair.
Raising over $100,000, the benefit is the Chicago Artist Coalition's largest fundraising event of the year. All of the proceeds directly support CAC's artist and curatorial residencies, education and professional development workshops, ground-breaking exhibitions, and the online platform CAR (Chicago Artists Resource).
At WORK IN PROGRESS we will announce the recipients of the 2017 MAKER Grants . Grants are sponsored by the Coney Family Fund and Other Peoples Pixels.

INSTALLATIONS BY ARTISTS:
GINGER KREBS --- SNOW YUNXUE FU --- JON CHAMBERS --- LAVENDER MENACE OCCUPATION / ANGELA DAVIS FEGAN & BRETT SWINNEY
 
MUSIC BY:
* STEVE MARQUETTE & THE LOWDOWN BRASS BAND *
* DJ Michael Slaboch and DJ Elliot Bergman (Wild Belle / Metal Tongues) *

In addition to great music, food, and drinks, this year's benefit will feature installations by four CAC BOLT and HATCH Project residents. Video installations by HATCH alum Snow Yunxue Fu and Jon Chambers will transform the venue's environment.
Jon Chambers, Symbiosis
In Symbiosis, 3D scans of Chambers body are rendered beyond their physical possibilities in surreal and nonrepresentational landscapes and spaces. Formal and perceptual relationships start to develop as we reflect on our own body’s control while interfacing with digital realities: bodies as data are fluid, mutable, influenced and infinite. The video culminates into abstractness, where the parts become vague references of themselves and are integrated in the space.
Snow Yunxue Fu, The Chambers
The Chambers is a multi-channel video installation made by the Chicago based new media artist Snow Yunxue Fu. The installation is consisted of columns of digital simulated waters, storming in natural and unnatural movements. The virtual liquid moving sculptures layer with repeated intervals going back and forth. Wild yet controlled, real yet digital, providing a limited opening for the viewers to interface with the subliminal imaginary nature.

Don't miss WORK IN PROGRESS! Artist & Arts Administrator tickets are available for $50.

The Latest:



The writer Rebecca Bengal profiles JLin (Jerrilynn Patton), "a producer at the vanguard of electronic music", coming out of Chicago & Northwest Indiana's dance music scene.
Patton’s music is propelled by the sheer force of her percussion, her ornate, radical progressions, her shape-shifting sounds, an undercurrent of menace. Listening to Jlin tracks is like watching the horror movie heroine open the door into a vast unknown—and yet, she turns out to be completely in control, morphing and bending the rhythm, changing up the narrative again.
“I want to surprise me as much as I want to surprise you,” she says. “I love when I hit a person like a tornado. There is no easing. We just go straight in.”
Two years ago, when Dark Energy came out, Patton was working swing shifts at U.S. Steel in East Chicago and then, in Gary. She was in the break room when she found out that album made year-end lists at The New York Times, The Wire, and Pitchfork. “I would be banding together these massive pieces of steel and then I would open Facebook, and everyone’s saying, ‘Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations,’ and I’m just like, ‘What are you talking about?’”
Within months, Patton, who had never been to a big concert in her entire life, was being flown to perform her own: at a museum in New York City, at a festival in Poland, in Barcelona, Moscow, Australia, India, in Los Angeles. Headlines capitalized on the Flashdance-esque narrative of the steelworker with an inner artistic drive. When famed designer Rick Owens asked her to soundtrack his fall 2014 show, she put in a request for time off to go to Paris Fashion Week. Her supervisors weren’t buying it.
“But when I came back and I showed them pictures, they were like, ‘Oh! This is real. Are you serious?!’” Patton says. “My life just started not to make sense.” She quit her day job more than a year ago to focus on music full-time.
