Here Hear Chicago

September 13 and 16
Navy Pier
600 East Grand Avenue
Chicago

Navy Pier welcomes world-renowned contemporary artist Nick Cave and international architect and MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang for Here Hear Chicago, a new site-specific project that incorporates art, design, and performance.

As part of Here Hear Chicago, the locally based duo, Cave and Gang, are set to present a series of live productions in which Cave’s performers will intersect and respond to a field of dynamic, custom-fabricated objects designed by Gang and her practice, Studio Gang. The performance series includes Cave’s newest performance work, Up Right, and internationally acclaimed HEARD. Both feature his iconic Soundsuits, accompanied by Chicago’s most talented musicians, including jazz artist Kahil El Zabar, the Chicago Children’s Choir, and others.
