Exchange is back in 2016! This time we’ve moved from Phoenix to Nashville! Working with Nashville visual and performance artist Carrie Gant, musician Kyle Numann, and visual artist Semi Song to bring IL artists to TN and TN artists to IL. A select group of visual and performing artists will be chosen to represent the two locations and travel from their home state to the other and back again.  Shipping, display, and exhibition of visual work will be paid for and handled by Carrie Gant and Side Street.  Travel and lodging assistance will be provided for selected performing artists. This exciting collaboration will allows artists’ work to travel and reach audiences in both up-and-coming and established art markets, create money-making opportunities for artists, create networking opportunities among artists, and work to bridge the distance among working artists in the United States.

World Premiere, FloatBrilliance

June 17-19, 2016
Links Hall, Chicago • 7pm

FloatBrilliance explores honest physicality and how we embody fulfillment. The immersive evening length work explores fulfilling space physically, visually, and sonically while investigating the blurring of roles between movers, video artists, and composers. Physical partnerships are built from playful shifts of time and weight and explore the sensations of tossing, diving, and catching to physicalize gravity’s effect on the body.
