Defibrillator Gallery is a proud participant in the citywide IN>TIME Performance Festival. The 2019 edition will focus on histories and archives, especially as they relate to performance art and other ephemeral practices. Embodying this idea, IN>TIME curators invited San Francisco-based Ryan Tacata to create a response to a work by the influential collective Goat Island Performance Group - coinciding with their retrospective at the Chicago Cultural Center. Defibrillator invited local artist Jenn Freeman and Boston-based Marilyn Arsem to be part of the program. Freeman will perform a movement piece mining her family’s history on the south side of Chicago. Arsem, an influential figure in the history of performance art, is the subject of a forthcoming book written and edited by Jennie Klein and Natalie S. Loveless who will be reading excerpts as part of the program.
