Broken English will present new work by artists working from different aesthetic and conceptual points of view  and various mediums, including drawing, painting, film, sculpture, performance, and installation. Broken English  does not attempt to draw direct relationships between the various practices, but rather to present an engaging group of ideas and let chance and intention overlap.

Broken English  is a three day event taking place May 24 to 26, 2019. Visit the s+s project Facebook Event for more information :

Defibrillator Gallery [DFBRL8R] is an international platform for Performance Art known for bold and courageous programming that aims to provoke thought and stimulate discourse surrounding time-based practices. DFBRL8R contextualizes performance in the realm of visual art – embracing those who look to the body in concert and conversation with time, space, object, or society. Actively contributing to a global dialog surrounding conceptual, ephemeral, or enigmatic modes of expression, DFBRL8R aims to raise awareness, appreciation, and respect for the discipline of Performance Art. Proudly part of Zhou B Art Center, a privately funded complex founded in 2004 by the Zhou Brothers in Chicago’s historic Bridgeport neighborhood, DFBRL8R LTD is a 501c3 arts organization made possible with support from Elizabeth Morse Genius Charitable Trust; Martha Strutters Farley and Donald C. Farley, Jr. Family Foundation; Zhou B Art Center; DFBRL8R Board of Directors; and generous contributions from our loving community.
