Committed to presenting a vast range of styles and forms, dfb is a non-profit 501c3 arts organization dedicated to fostering local talent while invigorating the Chicago art community with out-of-town [often international] artists. Curated by dfb director, Joseph Ravens, artists often present minimalist action-based or conceptual performances, looking to endurance, the body, objects and architecture for inspiration, research and practice. Our curatorial mission involves representing a vast range of styles and forms of time-based art. Appreciation for performance art among the general public is encouraged through programming, workshops, symposia, discourse and criticism. Providing opportunities for established and emerging artists, DEFIBRILLATOR cultivates a resourceful and supportive artistic community.
