Borderbend is happy to announce that we are partnering with High Concept Labs and the Carlos & Dominguez Fine Arts Gallery on a new program called Move / Remove // Place / Displace.
Pilsen, like other Chicago neighborhoods, is constantly in transition. Some of those
changes can be seen and felt quickly, whereas other changes manifest themselves slowly over years and
generations. What tools can we use to map out our future intentions, our neighborhoods and communities, the world we envision? Projects might consider questions such as: how can we witness the changes happening around us, and actively participate in processes that relate to movement and placement—in meaningful ways?
Move / Remove // Place / Displace programming will begin in fall, including a MRPD event that will happen during the 2015 Chicago Calling Arts Festival and other programs in Pilsen.
MRPD has a call for artists; the deadline is June 15th. Click here to read the RFP. If you're a Chicago-based artist, consider applying!
