Instagram Residency

Kate O'Neill | FeB-Mar 2016


Announcing New Curatorial Project: Instagram residency

Every house has a door launched a new curated photo project in which we invite an artist to take over the Every house Instagram (@evryhshsadr) account for two months. The first takeover was held in early 2016 with the sublime imagery of Kate O’Neill and her project in a car of black water.

Support of emerging artists whom we admire and who inspire us has always been part of the Every house intergenerational mission, and this project results in part from that intention. In February and March, Kate realized an original project with regular posts at @evryhshsadr in response to our new performance, now in progress, based on the 3 matadores passage from The Presentable Art of Reading Absence (Dalkey Archive Press, 2008) by the esteemed poet Jay Wright. We loved Kate's project so much we asked her if we could use it when redesigning our website in December 2016.

Kate O’Neill’s photographic and sculptural works have been shown at Roots and Culture, Rainbo Club, LVL3, EXPO, and Johalla Projects, Chicago; and at Lease Agreement, Baltimore. Her work has been included in curatorial projects by Third Object, Jason Lazarus, Melina Ausikaitis, and Theo Katsaounis.  Collaborations include Tropical Depression, with Laura Hart Newlon; experimental lecture The Ghost in the Upsetter: Lee Scratch Perry, Spaghetti Westerns, Kung-Fu, performed with Colleen Malone at the 2014 EMP Pop Music Conference, Seattle; and many shared efforts with musical group Disappears. She is currently making photographic projects in association with the Perkins School for the Blind, and with musical group Joan of Arc.  O’Neill is a Lecturer in the Department of Photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
