Persistence of Motion is a one-night exhibition, activating audience engagement. Through a combination of moving pictures and bodies, mediums become blurred and merged. With a consideration for the fundamental aspects of film and gesture, artists and audience will gather to create.
This past fall, Emerson Sigman was chosen from a large group of applicants to participate in Homeroom's Emerging & Established Artist Exchange (EEE). EEE offers young artists the experience of working as a professional artist in Chicago through developing their skills of presentation, networking, organization and self-promotion. As opposed to arts education programs that focus specifically on the artistic techniques of creative work, the EEE mentorship program puts an emphasis on the practical and entrepreneurial elements of an active artistic practice. This event is a great chance to see an up-and-coming artist and to learn more about Homeroom's EEE program.
