Rubloff Auditorium, the Art Institute of Chicago
Thursday, March 13, 7pm



In celebration of Christopher Wool’s retrospective at the Art Institute of Chicago, Wool and School of the Art Institute professor John Corbett have curated Loose Booty, an evening of performance at 7pm on March 13, 2014, at the museum’s Rubloff Auditorium.  Three distinct performances will range across film, literature, and especially music, dovetailing in various ways with Wool’s exhibition.  James Nares’s 2011 film “Street,” which features a soundtrack by guitarist Thurston Moore, will be presented for the first time in Chicago, with Moore playing live with the screening.  Writer and punk progenitor Richard Hell will read from his recent work, which includes the 2013 autobiography I Dreamed I Was a Very Clean Tramp.  As a grand finale, groundbreaking drummer Milford Graves will play together with Poughkeepsie multi-instrumentalist Joe McPhee for the first time, a major event in contemporary jazz and only Graves’ second appearance in Chicago.



$25 per member; $30 per nonmember; $10 Students and S/AIC Staff and Faculty
