DESCRIPTION

DEFIBRILLATOR (a.k.a dfbrL8r or dfb) is a non-profit arts organization under the fiscal sponsorship of Fractured Atlas. Part studio and  part gallery, dfb provides a gathering place to conceive, present, and promote performance art and other ephemeral forms of expression. 

DEFIBRILLATOR aims to:

  1.  Provide opportunities for emerging and established Chicago artists to conceive and present performance art. 

  2.  Present decidedly heterogeneous programming - focusing on international/out-of-town artists to represent a vast range of styles and forms. 

  3.  Build discourse and criticism surrounding performance art. 

  4.  Raise appreciation for performance art among the general public. 

  5.  Cultivate a resourceful and supportive transdisciplinary artistic community.

 Our end-goal is to foster a stimulating and innovative artistic atmosphere in Chicago in order to attract and retain high caliber artists. Our interests are global. We provide a destination for international artists - providing them with an American venue while exposing Chicago artists and audiences to work from other parts of the world. We aim to confront the boundaries and expectations that people have regarding ephemeral or enigmatic forms of expression.
