CHICAGO: Friday, March 19th at 6 pm sharp, the Gesture Guild will open its doors at its new headquarters at 119 N Peoria in unit 2C. Join us at 8 pm for the commencement dirge, absinthe induced and sailor sung. (Ed. note: Sailor attire is strongly encouraged, those who do not arrive as sailors will be made into sailors.)

More information about the Guild:

The League of Dark Departments have joined forces in the Gesture Guild, a bureau for the recovery and acquisition of lost gestures. The Gesture Guild aims to return and reinforce the primordial anxieties responsible for head-bending weight and other liquid spiraling disasters, topical and tropical.

The public, inflicted with involuntary movement, nervous twitches, and ticks, due to the loss of solid surfaces and time-space incongruity, can join various Guild programs in search of gravitational re-calibration.

Determined via a brief questionnaire, members of the public are initiated into the Guild, thus participating in prescribed Guild activities at individually appointed times.

A schedule of activities and appointments, available for public observation, will be posted on line at www.three-walls.org.

Irena Knezevic is a Serbian artist currently living in Chicago. Knezevic’s work spans a variety of media to construct public events where scores, instructionals, and programs come together with sculptural objects to form a narrative inventory. Current areas of research include topics, such as: “secrets,” “involuntary movement,” “dream-wreck,” “liquidity,” “topical and tropical disasters,” “downward spirals,” “bright lights,” “vibratory inscription,” "hallucinogenic modernisms," and “phantom continents.”
Recent projects and performances have occured at the Museum of Contemporary, Art Chicago; White Columns, New York; Harvard University, Cambridge and Galerie im Regierungsviertel, Berlin. Knezevic earned her MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2007.
