Extinct Entities

Extinct Entities is a project that explores the various histories of Chicago-based art spaces and collectives that no longer exist. Rather than simply looking at the disembodied objects, documentation, and purportedly objective histories that remain, we want to engage artists to research and perform their own expression of these histories.

Two publications–one produced while developing the event and one produced following it–will serve to exhibit the project’s inquiries, act as co-generated forms of documentation, and will serve as a reflection on the process.
