Almost five years ago to the day, we served on the committee that introduced Slideluck Potshow to Chicago. It was hosted at the gallery Y was director of and we had attendance of just over 300. Photos of the event and presenters shows can be seen here. For those unfamiliar with Slideluck, it breaks down like this: it's a two hour potluck plus a two hour slideshow, showcasing around twenty different artists. Presenters are allowed up to five minutes to present digital media via projector paired with a song of their choice. Our Chicago committee went on to produce three more Potshows in a span of two years. I found this format to be very fitting for my work and created four different shows, which can be seen below (SOME FEATURE ADULT THEMED CONTENT).
We may be a part of Slideluck once again, this time in Ann Arbor.
This format takes place on a global scale in cities all over the world. To find your closest Slideluck event and find out how you can become involved, look for details on their site.
