Chase Public Response Project XXVIII - The Pieces I Am

Hello one and all, please join us! May 24th, 7:00pm for the 28th installment of The Chase Public Response Project - this time focused on a collection of work currently on display at 1628 ltd. titled “The Pieces I Am: Artwork from the Sara M. and Michelle Vance Waddell Private Collection.” "The Pieces I Am” celebrates the diversity of the female artistic voice including local, national, and international works of art. The exhibit includes works of sculpture, tapestry, folk art, and photography. Many of these works of art have been on loan to major arts organizations but have not been on view to the public in Cincinnati and thus making their debut as iconic as the artists the works represent. Of the 22 artworks in this exhibition, some of the featured artists include Louise Bourgeois, Jenny Holzer, Bessie Nickens, Carolee Schneemann, Laurie Simmons, and Lorna Simpson among others."

The respondents have been given total autonomy to respond however feels most appropriate to them; which could vary from musical performance, to poetry, dance, lecture, rant, powerpoint, game, anything. They each have 10 minutes to express, perform, or share their response to this piece of art - informed by their experience, perspective, and opinion. Their response may be focused on a single piece, several pieces, or the entire show.

It is my great pleasure and honor to announce the final Chase Public event that we will host in our longtime home at the corner of Chase and Hamilton: Response Project XXVI - 1569 Chase Ave. #4  We will be responding to the room itself as an object of art.  It seems a fitting send off for a space that has been witness to so much expression, so much growth, and so much coming together.  

The respondents have been given total autonomy to respond however feels most appropriate to them; which could vary from musical performance, to poetry, dance, lecture, rant, powerpoint, game, anything.

ABOUT THE CHASE PUBLIC RESPONSE PROJECT//
Inspired by Pianist Brianna Matzke’s “The Stockhausen Response Project,” The Chase Public Response Project is an opportunity for creators and audiences to interact with art in a new way. Writers, artists, performers, and thinkers are assembled monthly(ish) to give their interpretation and share their impressions of the selected piece; they are given free range to do so by any means they choose. 

ABOUT CHASE PUBLIC//
Chase Public is a collaborative space for art and assembly in the Northside neighborhood of Cincinnati. Chase Public was conceived with the intent to create an environment that could help balance consumption with creativity, individualism with collaboration, high art with honest work and plain language. Occupying a room that was previously Elyse's Passion, Chase Public hosts poetry readings, music concerts, art openings, book signings, independent theater, stand-up comedy, hotly-contested debates, collaborative art-making, radical activism workshops, crazy-ass parties, and maybe one bird fight. Mostly poetry readings.

It is with every ounce of excitement that we can muster we announce the return of the Chase Public Response Project. We’re doing a few things differently:

1) Teaming up with Abby Mae Friend to support her show “WITH NO MEMORIES NO TIES NO PHANTOMS TO TEND FOR” at Wave Pool.

2) We’ll be hosting this response project at 2868 Colerain Avenue - just a block south of the gallery.

We will gather at Wave Pool at 6:00 to experience the exhibition, and at 7:00 we will all walk together down the block to the Chase Public Pop Up for the performances.

On January 27th, six exciting artists and thinkers have been invited to each perform ten minute responses to Eunsong Kim's poetic essay "Found, Found, Found: Lived, Lived, Lived," a brilliant piece of cultural criticism regarding Carrie Mae Weem's series From Here I Saw What Happened and I Cried. A beautiful and vulnerable indictment of the American tradition of cultural theft, historical and contemporary genocide, and the ways that different cultures carry that tradition of violence through their memory and their loss, Kim’s essay goes far deeper than any simple investigation or argument against cultural appropriation. 

Kim’s essay was also the conceptual impetus for Abby Mae Friend’s curatorial exhibition. 

The respondents have been given total autonomy to respond however feels most appropriate to them; which could vary from musical performance, to poetry, dance, lecture, rant, powerpoint, game, anything.
