The Remix Project was created in order to help level the playing field for young people from disadvantaged, marginalized and underserved communities. Their programs and services serve youth who are trying to enter into the creative industries or further their formal education. The Remix Project provides top-notch alternative, creative, educational programs, facilitators and facilities, with a mission to help refine the raw talents of young people in order to help them find success as participants define it and on their own terms.
As the first creative collaboration between Chicago based artists Marco Miller, Julius Torres, David Bozic, Sarune & SPiN’s artistic director Mathieu “TiU” Forget, the piece features street art with circus themes and vintage classic movies using wheatpasting, collage, spray & acrylic painting to represent community, fun and ping pong. They also pay homage to the amazing faces, architecture, brands and attractions that the city has to offer. The result is a perfect statement of what SPiN is all about: do it together, never alone. The complexity of the piece also invites the viewer to focus on smaller details within the work. Did you spot James Bond?
