About the Artist
Chicago based art-making group Lucky Pierre has been creating collaborative and participant driven events since 1995. Our work includes exhibitions, publications, learning communities and performances. Through these forms, we explore issues and ideas (political, aesthetic, social) in ways that accommodate a wide range of experience, styles and approaches. We strive to highlight the generosity of collaborators and audiences working together to create content, meaning and final form – all with the goal of encouraging conversation and creating community.
Founded in 1994 Lucky Pierre is a Chicago based internationally recognized art-making group working in performance, social practice, writing, visual forms and education. Their community event and 150-hour video “Final Meals” has been presented worldwide. “How to Manage Fear,” a live performance, was featured at the Eurokaz International Festival in Zagreb, and the Belluard Bollwerk Festival in Switzerland. The 12-hour live streaming event “I Hate America! (I Love America),” premiered simultaneously in London and Chicago and featured over 50 international collaborators. In 2012 the group launched Lucky Pierre Free University, a venue for co-learning and creation offering free research-based university level art classes.
