Ten accomplished artists and three Chicago arts organizations are uniting to present Ten x Ten 2017: Dual Practices, an artistic project that commissions and presents new audio and visual artworks on Saturday, September 9 at Experimental Sound Studio (5925 N. Ravenswood, Chicago).
Ten x Ten, a project established in 2010, fosters collaboration between visual artists and musicians, explores the collaborative process, and presents artistic concepts and gestures across media.
The 2017 roster of artists all produce compelling work as both visual artists and musicians, and are interested in experimentation and collaboration. The participating artists are Melina Ausikaitis, Ambrosia Bartosekulva, Mark Booth, Cathy Hsaio, Deidre Huckabay, Damon Locks, Lou Mallozzi, Joseph Clayton Mills, Allen Moore and Sadie Woods.
Ten x Ten 2017: Dual Practices is guest curated by Experimental Sound Studio (ESS), a non-profit, artist-run organization focused on sound in all its exploratory cultural manifestations. ESS is working in partnership with Homeroom and Spudnik Press Cooperative, the Ten x Ten founding organizations. Through the collaboration of these three distinct and accomplished organizations, Ten x Ten offers a truly unique opportunity for ten Chicago artists to produce new collaborative artworks.
