It’s that time of year again. Select Media Festival 8 begins tomorrow. Here is the run down.

When | November 19th and runs through November 22nd

Where | the experimental cultural center, the Co-Prosperity Sphere, and other venues across the city. Check out the specifics for each event

via Select Media Festival:

The eighth annual festival will feature video programs, a group exhibition, performances and presentations in conjunction with live music and action. This year we are keeping the festival short and sweet. We have no filler, no excuses and no doubts.

In our group show, Super Bad Ass, we will exhibit and present the work by artists that continue to inspire and baffle us with their work ethic, craft and aesthetic sensibilities.

The festival is produced by the non-profit arts organization, Public Media Institute, and is organized by artists, musicians and cultural workers based in Chicago.

Select Media Festival was born in 2001.
The festival explores contemporary art and media in local and global art communities. The festival promotes experimental work, interactive media, and social activism. Artists involved in Select Media Festival from the past include The Yes Men, Paper Rad, Kenneth Hung, Paul Chan, Future Farmers, Josh On, Cody Hudson, and hundreds of others.
