E-Dogz will be traveling all the way from Chicago to kick off the next six weeks of the Speakeasy!
Midwestern BBQ Migration
April 6th, 6–9 PM
La Esquina 1000 W. 25th St. KC-MO (a Charlotte Street Foundation Urban Culture Project venue)
The Speakeasy examines and presents dialogue driven art practice through an evolving cultural corridor. It isn’t a static exhibition, but a set of unfolding, social situations and events occurring intermittently over the course of the exhibit. The Speakeasy is a specific place and moment for experimenting with and challenging both broader structures and ourselves in how we understand the economic and social forms that our art, our work, and our place take on.
The Speakeasy aspires to create a functioning experimental cultural center driven by conversation. At any given time one can witness and participate in various events. It will become a focal point to explore inherent and new models of creative labor, artistic integrity, contemporary curating, and the role of the audience. The Speakeasy depends on you. We offer the space for your activation through participation and collaboration. We provide the context you provide the content: A bar doubles as a podium for lectures, communal tables, a reading and research room, and a month long micro-granting dinner series where tips generated will fund three new projects in Kansas City.
Hope to see you there!
