Echoes of a Tumbling Throne (Odas al fin de los tiempos) 5, 6, + 7

Artist name Sofía Cordóva
Artwork Description:

Livel 5: La Irmanda’ Thel Glaci Livel 6: OxúmOxosi Livel 7: Las Saturnales Echoes of A Tumbling Throne (Odas al fin de los tiempos) is a live and video performance suite imagining our world in a future timeline which covers 1500 years. The landscape of this future world - its denizens, artifacts, and culture - provides both a site for considering new realities and alternative histories, unfettered by the current social order, while serving as a distorted lens aimed at our present in keeping with the tradition of dystopian science fiction. Though interested in the possibilities for liberation that lie for those of us oppressed under capitalist systems and the violent organizational frameworks of race, class, and gender, this work is seeded with ambivalence about what possibilities lie on the other side of ecological decline for our species.

Neighborhood Listening Garden

Artist name Norman W. Long
Artwork Description:

Neighborhood Listening Garden is a 2 speaker sound-system and native plant garden installed at the Jeffery Manor Public Library’s Reading Garden in South Deering Community Area in Chicago, IL from September 21 - October 31 2019. The South Deering community area is a former steel industrial area located on the south east side of Chicago and is home to majority Black and Latinx residents. It was the home of Wisconsin Steel Works, originally the Joseph H. Brown Iron and Steel Company, South Works (US Steel), Iroquois Steel and Republic Steel. There are several neighborhoods that make up this community, South Chicago, Jeffery Manor, South Deering and Slag Valley. The two speaker outdoor sound system plays a composition made from recordings from analog synthesizers from his home studio and Elektronmusikstudion EMS in Stockholm, Sweden, Jeffery Manor, Bessemer Park, Calumet Park, Van Vlissingen Prairie and Big Marsh Park. The garden provides a space for reflection, an alternate mapping of the southeast side of Chicago, inquiry (what does a black/brown community sound like?), ecological restoration and resilience in the face of community disinvestment. released November 25, 2019 Norman W. Long: field recordings and analog synthesizers This program was presented in partnership with ThreeWalls, Chicago Public Library, Jeffrey Manor Branch Library and City of Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events. It is made possible by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, the Alphawood Foundation, and by Helis Foundation with support from Catherine Edelman.

Mal de Ojo (Evil Eye)

Artist name Jacquelyn Carmen Guerrero
Artwork Description:

Mal de Ojo (Evil Eye) is a musical composition that speaks to the power of gaze, both in the recipient and the gazer. It calls on the ancient power of sequins to reflect and dispel a malevolent gaze, as embodied by the similarly titled "Mal de Ojo" embroidered textile piece (Guerrero, 2017). This textile piece, which is a hybrid Cuban and Puerto Rican flag that incorporate the mal de ojo, or evil eye, symbol instead of the central star, is a talsman of protection for Black and Brown islanders against US imperlalism and colonization. A trip hop beat underscores this mystical and folkloric symbolism with a dystopian soundtrack, sampling the characters of The Oracle and Neo from The Matrix series to echo my continued entanglement in the matrix of colonization and capitalism. My voice and my defiant return of the viewer's gaze open and close the circle on this spell of protection. This performance was filmed by ColectivoMultipolar and Julia Zinn, edited by ColectivoMultipolar, and recorded live at TRQPITECA Studios Chicago, 2019.

Lean Wit It, Riot Wit It

Artist name Sadie Woods
Artwork Description:

Official artwork for It Was A Rebellion Mixtape

Lea Wit It, Riot Wit It
Lean Wit It, Riot Wit It draws from race protests and music of Black cultural expressions. This screen print engages with these compositions and gives a new visual reality to Black people today. Visuality, often used to mean all things seeable, here is meant to be able to imagine oneself in history. When Black history is repressed, our heroes are disappeared or sanitized and our contemporary culture is treated as a space to be commodified, co-opted and depoliticized. This work restores connections between then and now, and reminds us of political dimensions under the surface of Black popular culture.
