RAPID PULSE International Performance Art Festival, June 5-15, 2014, will show live work by 29 international, national, and local artists who were invited by the curatorial committee (Julie Laffin, Steven Bridges, Giana Gambino, and Joseph Ravens) or selected from an international call for proposals. RAPID PULSE also includes public interventions, a video series, social events, artist talks, and panel discussions. Spilling over to other venues in the neighborhood, the festival embraces the local and the global simultaneously. Your generosity at this event is greatly needed and funds raised will go toward meals for the artists, housing, and materials.
Rapid Pulse is supported by the British Council, Cliff Dwellers Arts Foundation, and SAIC. Defibrillator is partially supported by grants from the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, The Illinois Arts Council Agency, and Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.
