Chicago-based artist, Amy Honchell, was commissioned to create a site-specific installation at the Perry's venue as a part of the Museum of Contemporary Art's partnership with Lollapalooza 2008. Making its debut in 2008, Perry’s is an open-air electronica stage featuring live DJ sets. Tucked into the shady garden section of the park named, fittingly, after Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell, Perry’s is part dance club and part intimate lounge — with lots of room for grooving under the trees. Featured DJs include Mark Ronson, Flosstradamus, VHS or Beta and many more!
In Honchell's work, topology, sewing, and elements of mapping explore the parallels between the structures and functions of the human body, architecture, and the landscape.
Inspired by an outcropping of trees and the Perry's electronica sound stage located at the corner of Jackson Boulevard and Lake Shore Drive, the installation will playfully engage concert attendees of the outdoor music venue. Honchell's piece was on view from August 1-3, 2008. This exhibition was organized by MCA Pamela Alper Associate Curator Julie Rodrigues Widholm.
