Rapid Pulse international Performance Art Festival

Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery

Jun. 1, 2016, 12:00 am

1463 W Chicago Ave


DEFIBRILLATOR GALLERY is now accepting proposals for our fifth annual RAPID PULSE INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART FESTIVAL to be held JUNE 1-5, 2016. Marking our five-year anniversary, Rapid Pulse will depart from our usual template which aims to nurture and reflect on the exchange of new experiences. We continue to focus on contextualizing performance within visual art by representing a wide range of styles and forms of time-based expression. RAPID PULSE 2016 will present dynamic programming, decidedly fearless and unique, that provokes thought and stimulates discourse surrounding performance art.

This year we celebrate the importance of the number five, having condensed the festival into a five day program with five distinct events each day. To learn more about the festival, please visit www.RAPIDPULSE.org.
We aim to present a mixture of International, local, and national artists, however, because of the condensed scale of the 2016 festival, we will only accept a very limited number of proposals that fit within a set structure. Preference will be given to work meeting the following criteria:
Performances of thirty minutes or less in the main gallery.
Durational work lasting three or more hours in our window, viewed from the street.
In Situ performances outside a gallery context.
