Tim Miller‘s work can be described as if “Gay White Male” were a genre of self-aware, edgy, fey, political performance art. It’s personal and sometimes vulgar and always centered on himself. These qualities make an interesting premise for this weekend’s “Charged Bodies” at Links Hall:
The results of a four month mentorship by Tim Miller of three Chicago-based performance artists, all self-identified as queer or addressing queer-related themes in their work. Using studio space at The Center on Halsted and resources provided by Links Hall, the three artists have developed new solo pieces under Miller’s guidance. Tim Miller will also perform a 15 minute excerpt from a new work in progress.
Awilda Rodriguez is a Chicago-based, queer Puerto Rican immigrant and multi-disciplinary artist. She keeps a blog over at Boricua Cheerleader, and is primed to be a midwestern landmark in the feminist area of today’s queer rights movement.
