The cheerful sounding “Bubbly Creek” is the south branch of the south fork of the Chicago river and forms the western border of Bridgeport. It derives this nickname from gases bubbling out of the riverbed from decomposing animal waste dumped into the river a century ago by the Union Stockyards. It still bubbles to this day. Brought to notoriety by Upton Sinclair in his exposé on the American meat packing industry entitled The Jungle, the contaminated river is a revolting reminder of the harshness of industrial capitalism, exploitation of [often immigrant] labor, and disproportionate concentrations of wealth in America. From the Haymarket Affair in 1886 fighting for workers' rights, to the Pullman railroad strike in 1894 over corporate greed and poverty, labor issues were at the forefront of late 20th century social concerns and are [obviously] still relevant today. This project celebrates the Bridgeport neighborhood and is an homage to Chicago’s rich labor history and how it relates to and influences the local art community. (archive photo by John Nowakowski)

Bubbly Creek: re.GENERATION
ZHOU B ART CENTER | 1029 W 35TH ST

Bubbly Creek Performance Art Assembly is a proud cross-contamination with the In/habit roving art series project: PLANTS & ANIMALS: On Monsters, Cyborgs and Other Hybrid Creatures. It is a collision of performance, discussion, screening, and broadcasting events focused on themes of hybridity, layered ecologies and practices of inhabiting and interrogating Nature. Through this assembly we ask and examine how we survive together.
