Closing Reception - Amelia Charter's "People"

For the Comfort Station's January 2016 takeover exhibit, ‘People,’ returns to the history of the building as a place to get warm and then left cold for many years until it’s renovation. 

The exhibit is on veiw from the outside for the entire month of January. There will be both an opening and closing reception that will include refreshments and live music.

Opening Reception
FRI JAN 8 7p – 10p

Closing Reception
FRI JAN 30 7p – 10p

The exhibit features a live performance by January’s takeover artist, Amelia Charter and performer Adam Kerbel. The performance is a movement and textual score that further explored and challenges the contact of two bodies seeking warmth and space. They confront, comfort, constrain and confide in one another.

Performance
FRI JAN 15 8p



Amelia Charter is a performance artist, teacher, and writer. Charter’s artwork explores movement, materials, and duration by hybridizing sculpture and live performance. Both her live events of performance and fine art works are meditations on human relationships, wildness, dwelling and the utilitarian.
Charter regularly performs one-on-one, and both her solo and collaborative work has been featured at Sector 2337, Defibrillator Gallery, Mana Contemporary, Co-Prosperity Sphere, Links Hall, with Second-Floor Rear, and in artist-run organizations and larger curations in New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Denver and internationally in India. She earned her BA in Performance and Directing, was co-founder of Denver Performance Research, and received an MFA and fellowship in Performance from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Adam Kerbel is an actor, teacher, and artist who intersects the disciplines of dance and theatre. His performance work investigates intuition. Adam is co-founder of Almanac Dance Circus Theatre and Graffito Works and spent several years living and collaborating on the East Coast. He joins Amelia now in Chicago for a new chapter in his professional stage career.
