Moon Readings at 6018North's Water Exhibition
THIS EVENT IS PRESENTED BY ILLINOIS HUMANITIES GRANTEE PARTNER, 6018NORTH.
Visit 6018North's Water exhibition and receive a Moon Reading by Rebecca Beachy! Meet with Rebecca for short 20 min. readings to discover the moon's effect on you, where the moon was at your birth, and where it is now. Since the moon can rule the tides, imagine what it can do to you.
The Water exhibition is open Saturdays, 1:00 - 5:00 p.m., through February 3, 2024. Presented as a partner project of the Chicago Architecture Biennial, Water uses the Chicago River as an entryway to discuss the interconnectedness and relational importance of water upon the City and its people. From pre-settler colonialism to present day, the availability of water has impacted the City of Chicago’s formation, rise, and current environmental concerns. The exhibition begins with a contemporary view of the Chicago River through the video of artist/architect Jennifer Buyck walking along the entire river. The exhibition also looks to Lake Michigan and the Mississippi River to correlate universal costs of exploitation, commodification, control, and renewal of waterways. Water’s impact and importance is much more than just economical and environmental. Water—essential to life—is a shared resource that connects all.
