Chicago, IL 60608
The Co-Prosperity Sphere (C-PS) is an Experimental Cultural Center located in Bridgeport, The Community of the Future.
The space is used to showcase artists, musicians, performers and cultural workers from around the world. The C-PS hosts exhibitions, screenings, presentations, installations, festivals, and performance programs in its 5,000 square foot gallery. Many of the organizers of the C-PS live above it on the second floor and you will find us curating and organizing shows as much as we mop up the floors.
The people behind C-PS also started buddY, the precursor to our new home. Thus, by guilt of association, the C-PS hosts the Lumpen Magazine office and the Public Media Institute; a non profit arts organization that helps produce the annual Version Festival and the Select Media Festival. The sphere also contains the Reuben Kincaid Project Room, a few artist studios, and an artist residency program.
Moving to the south side allowed us to realize our dreams of having a very flexible and large space to promote a diversity of interests that we hope showcases the best Chicago's various creative communitys can offer. Please join us at our myriad events and programs, stop by, grab a copy of Lumpen or Proximity magazines. Or walk on by and check out the latest window display by neighborhood artists and internationally reknowned troublemakers.
