North-end Wall of Cook County Jail at 26th and Francisco Avenue

You are invited to join and experience as the North-end wall bordering the Cook County Jail becomes a screen transformed by audio and animations created by currently and previously detained individuals at Cook County Jail. This live, free, public art installation will act as a space of exchange and communication between two communities – those outside the 96-acre compound and those working in the jail and behind bars.

Radioactive, led by artist Maria Gaspar, is a series of community-engaged radio/visual broadcasts located between the largest architecture of Chicago’s West Side, the Cook County Jail, and the working-class residential area of the Lawndale communities. Radioactive centers the voices of those currently incarcerated by broadcasting and projecting their compelling stories from inside out.

Tune in to Lumpen Radio (105.5 FM) or join us live at the wall to engage in the work of the Radioactive Ensemble!
