The work of Chicago-based artist Jefferson Pinder, inhabits the body employing physical prowess and grueling endurance. His artwork reflects his interest in using the black body as medium to explore strength and politics. Particularly focusing avant-garde physical theatre and Afro-Futurism, he creates dynamic meditative events, allowing for communion between the performers with the spectators. Pinder's work has been featured in numerous group shows including exhibitions at The Studio Museum in Harlem, the Wadsworth Athenaeum Museum of Artin Hartford, Connecticut, and the Zacheta National Gallery in Warsaw, Poland. Pinder is represented by Patricia Sweetow Gallery in San Francisco, and is an Associate Professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Peephole Cinema is a small benevolent gesture, one which offers an element of surprise and delight to the public realm. It exists as a peephole; an alternative venue for art, which showcases experimental film in a publically accessible manner 24/7.
