  • Thu, Sep 26th 6:00pm

Informed by ideas of improvisation, collaboration, and flux, Chicago-based artist Selina Trepp (BFA 1998) produces exuberant works from radically limited means. Since 2012, she has refrained from bringing new materials into her practice, instead recycling past artworks and remnants into each new project. Her animated films reflect the continuously evolving environment of her studio through their dynamic topographies and breath-like rhythms. For this special program, she presents a selection of recent films; a live performance as Spectralina, her ongoing collaboration with musician Dan Bitney; and the premiere of I WORK WITH WHAT I HAVE (2019), a new stop-motion animation and visual score performed by Bitney, Tomeka Reid, and Jason Roebke. DCP and live performance. (Amy Beste)

Selina Trepp, Dan Bitney, Tomeka Reid, and Jason Roebke are scheduled to appear for audience discussion.
