Chicago Media Embraces IN>TIME 13

Chicago media outlets enthusiastically welcomed IN>TIME 13, the winter-long, citywide performance art festival organized by artist, curator, and SAIC Performance faculty member Mark Jeffery.  On January 22, Culturebot of New York City highlighted the diverse list of collaborating venues, noting the festival connects 15 of the city’s “vibrant visual and performing art venues/organizations ranging from the Chicago Cultural Center, to galleries such as threewalls gallery and the Red Rover Series.”  In an interview with Bad At Sports published on January 26, Jeffery explains “we were excited to contact and connect with local venues and spaces that we already respected for their public programming of performance, symposia, exhibition, talks, and/or readings—spaces that already had an affinity towards IN>TIME’s desire to showcase performance practices in the broadest terms.” Notable events in the festival’s lineup include a performance by Miguel Guttierriez and the Powerful at the MCA, which has already received much build up in Time Out Chicago, Newcity Stage, and the Chicago Tribune.  In an article published by the Redeye on January 25, Jeffery also highlighted Switzerland-based artist Maria Ribot’s first US performance of Laughing Hole at the Chicago Cultural Center on February 24.
