Existing somewhere between sound and comedic art, Sponsored Artist Becky Grajeda’s Things that should not be picked up in the first place is a series of performances in which a panel of Chicago-based artists and non-artists improvise a conversation, while embedded in a live mix of sound art and/or music. Grajeda and fellow panelists will discuss topics ranging from the banal to the socially relevant, together devising, deconstructing, and perfecting absurd concepts and contexts. The live mixed sound art will disrupt and inform the panelists’ conversation, each taking turns at the periphery of the soundscape.
Please note: this event does not take place at High Concept Labs/Mana Contemporary Chicago
