Ten x Ten is a collaboration between visual artists and musicians exploring visual and auditory interaction. By challenging artists to conceptualize their work across media, Ten x Ten asks participants to stretch and expand their creative process. Through producing a limited edition compilation and public presentation of the resulting artworks, Ten x Ten documents, celebrates, and promotes Chicago’s artistic community.

The basic concept is “evolution.” An idea may start alone and simple with no ornamentation or elaboration. Through time this idea begins to grow and adapt based on various outside influences. This transformation sees the idea evolve into something new.
