About the performance: The Green Lantern Press is pleased to present Wasted hours – an evening of performance. Curated by Every house has a door, with newly commissioned works by Michal Samama and Alberto Aguilar, Wasted Hours is the only live part of the experimental online exhibition Institutional Garbage (Sector 2337 and Hyde Park Art Center)—a group show that imagines the office waste of imaginary rubbish of a future, possibly Utopic, institution. Wasted Hours considers performance in ways analogous to the exhibition’s framing of the hidden aspects of institutions. The title derives from a letter by the poet Emily Dickinson, written on a September day 170 years ago:
… Does it seem as though September had come? How swiftly summer has fled, and what report has it borne to heaven of misspent time and wasted hours? Eternity only will answer. …
Wasted hours – an evening of performance is the third collaborative curatorial coproduction between Every house and The Green Lantern Press.
About the curators: Every house has a door was formed in 2008 by Lin Hixson, director, and Matthew Goulish, dramaturge, to convene project-specific teams of specialists, including emerging as well as internationally recognized artists.http://www.everyhousehasadoor.org/
About the Artists:
I will write this biography using 165 words but will not discover this number until it is complete. From this point forward he will be speaking in third person. Alberto Aguilar is a Chicago based aartist and was born there as well. Aguilar’s creative practice often incorporates whatever materials are at hand as well as exchanges with his family, other aartists, and people he encounters. His work bridges media from painting and sculpture to video, installation, performance, and sound and has been exhibited at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary AArt, the Queens Museum, Crystal Bridges Museum of American AArt, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of AArt, the Minneapolis Institute of AArt and the AArt Institute of Chicago. He holds a BFA and an MFA from the School of the AArt Institute of Chicago and currently teaches at Harold Washington College one of the City Colleges of Chicago. In order to create slight confusion, he has added an extra letter A where ever the word aart appears in this bio.
Michal Samama creates body-based art, incorporating movement, everyday objects, sound, text and site-specific practices. Her work moves between the theater, the gallery and the public space, exploring the different dynamics by which these spaces are capable of ‘framing’ art. She recently presented works at Theatre de la Ville in Paris, ASPECT RATIO Gallery in Chicago, Intima-Dance and Curtain Up Festivals in Tel Aviv and was commissioned by The Chocolate Factory Theater in New York. In Chicago, her work has been presented at Julius Caesar Gallery, EXPO CHICAGO 2014, 6018 North Gallery, Rapid Pulse Festival 2014 and TBSO3 at Defibrillator Gallery, Out of Site 2015, Mana Contemporary, Links Hall, TRITRIANGLE and Northwestern University. In New York she presented her work at New York Live Arts, Movement Research at Judson Church, Performance Mix Festival, Dixon Place, Joyce SoHo, CPR, Chez Bushwick, Priska C. Juschka Gallery, AUNTS and the 92nd Street Y, where she also curated Sunday At Three in January 2012.
