"Bloomsday 2012 & Ulysses' 90th" is being presented by the Borderbend Arts Collective and partnering organizations and individuals. Borderbend is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to promote the arts by creating opportunities for artists to explore the aesthetic geography along the borders and boundaries between art forms. Poetry, music, performance, and the visual arts are no longer discreet modes: hybrid forms and interarts collaborations proliferate in global arenas.
Borderbend programs encourage artists to use innovative aesthetic technologies and create strategies to engage and collaborate with artists from divergent communities in Chicago and around the world. Multi-venue musical performances, literary events, visual arts exhibitions, and interdisciplinary festivals reach beyond immediate cultural and aesthetic neighborhoods to cross borders and boundaries among participants, audiences, and art forms.
