High Concept Labs and and the Hideout, a historic neighborhood bar and performance venue located in Chicago’s North Branch Industrial Corridor, present HCL’s new Hideout Residency Series, taking place throughout January 2019.
Featuring dynamic, multi-artist performances held at the Hideout, the four-week series showcases the work of HCL’s current and past resident artists in celebration of the organization’s 10th year collaborating with artists and organizations across Chicago to strengthen the city’s creative community.
“When High Concept Labs was first founded in 2009, our first studios were located right across the street from the Hideout – one of Chicago’s most important independent venues and an organization we’ve long counted as a partner in our mission to transform the creative sector by providing an open pathway between artists and communities,” said Billie Howard, artistic director of HCL. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate 2019 as HCL’s 10th anniversary year than partnering with the Hideout to showcase the work of our artists.”
