Invisible Roses…. Jeanetteto present site-specific work for the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago’s 50th Anniversary on October 21

InvisibleRosesbyJeanetteAndrews_PhotobyAmandaAbernathy2WEB

Rose petals unlock invisible maps, the scent of wet dirt imbues audience members with magical powers, and viewers use a single piece of fabric to create the impossible… This is “Invisible Roses.” Sensory illusionist and magician Jeanette Andrews returns to the Museum of Contemporary Art with a site-specific performance exploring concepts of certainty and being hidden in plain sight. Immersive and highly-interactive, the entire audience collaborates to create the performance by making crucial decisions and possessing seemingly impossible knowledge. Responding to Christo and Jean-Claude’s fabric wrapping of the MCA’s building in 1969, Andrews’ series of mysterious installations and interactive performances serve as a celebration of the museum’s future.
