Creative Conversation with Artist Itshanapa Dail Chambers 03/29 by Phantom Gallery Chicago Network | Visual Arts Podcasts

Creative Conversation with Artist Itshanapa Dail Chambers 03/29 by Phantom Gallery Chicago Network | Visual Arts Podcasts:




Sankofa: A Collective Mythology takes place in the heart of the Midwest, U.S.A.: Saint Louis, Missouri. Artist, Itshanapa Dail Chambers begins the story with the search for her grandmother which parallels her genealogical art process. Through this experience she is introduced to collective ancestors, famous people and collaborators who have impacted society and the Saint Louis region.



Dail Chambers is a mother, artist and activist who exhibits and lectures nationally. She practices her studio art process in St. Louis Place, in north St. Louis, Missouri. Her artwork is based in material meaning and women's topics through an inquiry of history, self and family.


 by Dail "Itshanapa" Chambers Mobile 
The concept of place and time are integral components of her work. Dail founded the Yeyo Arts collective, a group of five artists who opened Gya, a non profit community arts space that creates arts and culture experiences within the St. Louis region.



She has received numerous awards for her work, including the Visionary Award for Emerging Artist in 2011 and a Resolution from the City of St. Louis, Missouri in 2010. She is a 2010 Community Arts Training Institute graduate and 2011 Urban Bush Woman SLI fellow.


Investigation: What does it mean to exhibit in temporary installation spaces outside of the museum? What are you strategies for Community Arts Engagement? How do you envision the future present?

Wall of Respect... Closing Remarks



"Art is Business" Produced by Tony Smith

A PAGE OF MADNESS

"Art is Business" Renee' Baker's CHICAGO MODERN ORCHESTRA PROJECT/PEK CONTEMPORARY PROJECT Berlin present


A PAGE OF MADNESS
Directed by Teinosuke Kinugasa

A 1926 lost Japanese Modernism silent film regarding madness and its' reality brought to life with new score by visual artist and AACM composer Renee' Baker




Performed by Chicago/Berlin collaboration of

CHICAGO MODERN ORCHESTRA PROJECT
PEK CONTEMPORARY PROJECT Berlin

A stunning invocation of the world as viewed by the mentally ill, within minutes, as the rapid montage of the opening storm sequences dissolves into the surrealistic fantasy of the sailor's wife dressed in an exotic costume dancing in front of an art-deco inspired backdrop featuring a large spinning ball flanked by ornate fountains.

A Page of Madness bowls you over with a barrage of startling images utilising every technique known to filmmakers of the time. Even now, Kinugasa's film seems as fresh as a daisy and when seen on the big screen, as eye-popping an experience as anything you've ever seen.
