One of a Kind Silent Auction
This year, we collaborated with local artists to create one-of-a-kind artworks inspired by the artists of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. This exclusive silent auction will feature original artwork and objects from the following artists.
Lindsey French is an artist and educator based in Chicago, having received her Master of Fine Arts in Art and Technology Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013. She is a recent recipient of a Propeller Fund grant, and was a nominee of the 2013 Clare Rosen & Samuel Edes Foundation Prize for Emerging Artists. Her work has been presented at the Chicago Cultural Center, and exhibited at the International Symposium of Electronic Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the LeRoy Neiman Center in Chicago, Illinois, and the Berlin Studios of the Royal Institute of Art in Berlin, Germany. In her work she explores the complexities and tensions between new technologies and the natural world.
Founded in 2009 by designer Kahindo Mateene, MODAHNIK is known for the mix of vibrant colors with bold prints. Having lived and traveled in Africa, Europe and America, Kahindo expertly combines these different stylistic elements, bringing a unique point of view to her design aesthetic. A native of The Democratic Republic of Congo, she pulls inspiration from the Avant Garde spirit of the Congolese art and culture. Kahindo landed a spot as a contestant on Season 12 of Lifetime Network’s Emmy Nominated designer competition series Project Runway.
Kellen Walker is a Chicago-based interdisciplinary artist working primarily with movement, fragrance, food, and audio montage in a narrative format. Her studio practice toggles between collaborative rehearsals and solitary hours in a basement writing and tinkering with homemade perfumes. Using fragrance with dancers in live performance is her main line of inquiry. Currently, her master’s research is in Interdisciplinary Arts & Media at Columbia College.
