Underground Introduces Studio 207
After eight years as an experimental traveling
European film festivals EU is changing direction. In 2003 Euro Underground
obtained a loft/gallery space in Chicago and will be concentrating
on exhibitions of film and video installations, loops and public
video/film exhibitions in the 1500 square foot open-air courtyard.
The departure from film festival into a gallery/exhibition
space enables Euro Underground to support experimental film/video
on a yearly basis, and also invite curators, programmers, film/video
collectives the opportunities to co-sponsor events and exhibitions
with Euro Underground and Studio 207.
Studio 207 is made up of
two spaces, available for a wide range of exhibition and opportunity’s.
The main gallery space is a 1500 square foot space right of the
courtyard. This space is designed for installations, visual art
and small screenings 40-60 people. The courtyard space is an open
air space in a garden setting perfect for video and film projection.
A third space is in development which would allow for up to 100-150
for screenings and performances.
Individual film/video makers are encouraged
to submit work. An application and a achieve of the last eight years
can be found at www.eurounderground.org If you are an installation
artists, curator, programmer, sound artist or interested in working
with EU and Studio 207 please email firstname.lastname@example.org
