High Concept Labs announces its Fall 2017 lineup
High Concept Labs (HCL) announces the Fall 2017 lineup of its Sponsored Artist Program. Eight artists and collaboratives will develop, rehearse, and present new work for Chicago audiences this season. In conjunction with rehearsal and performance space, HCL provides Sponsored Artists with administrative, marketing, production, documentation, and development assistance. 2017 marks the seventh year of the Sponsored Artist Program.
For two seasons each year, artists are selected by HCL’s staff and Artistic Advisory Council to incubate, workshop, perform, or exhibit new work. “HCL aims to support each artist by allowing them the space and time to experiment, and catalyze the creative process,” says HCL Artistic Planning Manager, Billie Howard.
This season’s Sponsored Artists are a diverse group of emerging and established artists working across a range of disciplines, from film and writing to music and movement. As part of their Sponsorship, artists will participate in Artist Critiques, and present Works-In-Progress showings, Workshops, and other public offerings for Chicago audiences, including the Fall Open House.
High Concept Labs will host an open house loft art party showcasing works-in progress, performances, installations, and music by artists from the organization's past and present.
