Illinois Artists at Work: Cannot Live Without

Illinois Artists at Work: Cannot Live Without

episode

Ever wonder what some of the state's most accomplished and original artists have on their minds? This new documentary takes a look at five artists' work, methods, and ruminations on their craft and the world. Featured are poet Daniel Borzutzky, visual artist Allison Ruttan, and project-based artist Jeremiah Hulsebos-Spofford, all of Chicago; Urbana resident and choreographer/performer Cynthia Oliver; and Carbondale composer Kathleen Ginther. The program highlights works in progress, including Ruttan's exhibition opening soon at the Chicago Cultural Center, 'A Bad Idea Seems Good Again,' which focuses on the destruction of property and lives in Middle East conflicts; and Hulsebos-Spofford's 'Floating Museum,' a project that involves a small-scale replica of the DuSable Museum of African-American History which would be floated up the Chicago River to DuSable Park.
