Join us for an evening of exchange choreographed by Black Chalk and Co. (Nontsikelelo Mutiti and Tinashe Mushakavanhu). Participate in a performative workshop that explores the power of language and our ability to alter our ways of being. In this way we get to experience the fluid, changing nature of language and meaning.

Enjoy an array of free snacks and beverages as you listen to a live DJ set by Philadelphia-based artist bb basura. Featuring Risograph printing activity courtesy of Common Press, and food from bāo•logy. ICA’s galleries will be open late with free guided tours of our current exhibitions, «Speech/Acts» and Nathalie Du Pasquier, «BIG OBJECTS NOT ALWAYS SILENT.»

ICA’s biannual Free For All programs invite students and community members to experience ICA after hours and enjoy free snacks, drinks, exhibition tours, music, and performances.

This will be a live editing session where the audience participates in building a new lexicon in real time through word remixing, language invention, and annotations. The idea is to turn the space into a pop up language lab. The interactive editing process will generate live annotations from the audience that will be transmitted through an overhead projector and multimedia channels. Besides co-authoring a new dictionary of meaning in real time, participants will also produce their own zines. In their publishing practice, Black Chalk and Co uses participatory binding as an integral way of involving the audience to be collaborators.
Only registered users may comment.
