The CBMR Blog

In 2015, the blog’s core purpose was to engender conversation around the CBMR’s public art commission FREE/PHASE. The blog documents how Mendi and Keith Obadike, the commissioned artists, are activating the CBMR archives and the city of Chicago by posing sonic questions about freedom and music’s role in its promotion. Phase2 of FREE/PHASE took place in the Summer 2016 at Rebuild Foundation’s Stony Island Arts Bank.

The five blog categories as a whole are designed to initiate a range of other conversations for the musically and culturally curious. Join in!
