In Union Park, Chicago, IL
Johalla Projects, with support from the Thompson Hotel Chicago, will present large-scale public art installations by Chicago-based artists Heather Gabel and Chad Kouri at this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival. Together, Gabel and Kouri will create a “Geometric Village” on the south side of the festival, located adjacent to the Blue Stage.
The artists, who primarily work in two-dimensional collage, will translate their vastly disparate visual aesthetics into highly stylized, three-dimensional house-like structures that festival attendees will be able to walk through and around. Consequently, with support from Chicago’s Tan & Loose Press, this “Village” — which will also feature art works on the structures’ interiors — will provide an opportunity for Pitchfork attendees to immerse themselves in an atmosphere which will vastly differ from the typical music festival backdrop.
