BRING THE RUCKUS: RED GROOMS ON CELLULOID
Where: Co-Prosperity Sphere, 3219-21 South Morgan Street, Chicago, IL 60607 When: Thursday, April 24 at 7:30 PM (Doors open @ 7) How Much: $5 suggested donation
In partnership with the Co-Prosperity Sphere, South Side Projections presents BRING THE RUCKUS: RED GROOMS ON CELLULOID, a sampling of experimental works from the 1960s. A graduate of the School of the Art Institute, Red Grooms is best known for his expressionistic sculpto-pictoramas depicting the hustle and bustle of urban existence. Like many Pop Art luminaries, he shattered the highfalutin sanctity of the gallery space, bridging the divide between high art and mass culture. A cross between Busby Berkeley and Jack Smith, TAPPY TOES (1969, 19 min., 16mm) is a kitschy musical with kaleidoscopic visuals that uses Grooms’s massive installation City of Chicago as its backdrop. Look out for cameo appearances by Hairy Who heavyweights Ed Paschke and Karl Wirsum. FAT FEET (1966, 19 min., 16mm) is a mixed-media stop-motion short made with longtime collaborator Mimi Gross. Reminiscent of Grooms’s metropolitan dioramas, the film features a whimsical caricature of a city come alive, complete with an anthropomorphized mailbox. Finally, George Kuchar’s ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE BLESSED (1968, 43 min., 16mm) chronicles a surreal cross-country road trip with Grooms that culminates in a performance piece starring Grooms himself. Kuchar called it “a diary of our work as we head for the Pacific Ocean in a suicidal plunge for theatrical infamy.”

March 21-22 : Great Fires
Great Fires, produced in partnership with The Stockyard Institute, is a living museum of Chicago past, present, and mythological. Our guide is Mrs. O’Leary, the Chicagoan famously accused of starting the Great Fire of 1871 in her Near-West Side barn. White Elephant commissioned six Chicago-based artists to create short performance pieces inspired by some aspect of Chicago’s heritage. White Elephant curates these performances in a theatrical museum of Chicago lore—the good, the bad, the factual, the mythological. Performance are at The Co-Prosperity Sphere on March 21st and 22nd at 7:30 PM and tickets at $10. White Elephant is a Chicago-based collective that creates unlikely experiences in unexpected places. WE pulls theatre out of its cage, unleashes the liveness, and re-harnesses it for the environment of now. For more on our story, visit our website: www.
