LiveBox came into its own in 2006, initially envisioned as an outlet for video. At the time, I was frustrated by the meager showing of video art in Chicago, as compared to NY, London, and Berlin. As LiveBox evolved and our curators worked with numerous artists locally and internationally, our interests also evolved. New Media, alternative sound, performance, and the cross-pollination of multiple disciplines became our passion, exciting projects that were often marginalized because of their non-commercial status. After years of curating exhibitions and happenings, a running new residency for critical thinking, we are signing off (at least for now).
