Discussion and Screening

Gallery 400 Lecture Room
400 South Peoria Street

Hot Media 3 Primary

Hot Media is an experiment in collective curation. It is also a forum to stimulate interdisciplinary dialogue on art/media topics relevant to many across the UIC campus and beyond. Thirdly, we aim to extend themes of Gallery 400 exhibitions beyond the Gallery doors. We curate and present programs consisting of moving image works, interactive arts, visual arts, music, performance, scholarly talks, and you name what else. It is an informal yet engaging opportunity to hear, see, and discuss with like-minded culture enthusiasts.

For our third session, Hot Media literally and figuratively tackles sport, games, and their mixture within cultural identities. We will screen moving image works, curated by the Hot Media Series Committee, host three guest presentations, and offer other delights. Join the discussion and tell us your thoughts on athletic culture, physicality within art, team-like behaviors, post-colonial histories, and other discursive workouts. These themes correspond to, and extend from, the current Gallery 400 exhibition, On Sundrun.
