The idea of a festival of experimental art may sound like a shaky proposition for tentative audiences. If there is any place in Chicago I trust to do it right, Links Hall is the place. All month long Links Hall presents “Treasure Hunt, ” a festival of boundary-breaking work. Curated by Angeline Gragasin, Links Hall artistic associate, each week will bring a new bill of artists, a variety format that Links Hall is especially terrific at doing. Though you may not (and probably won’t) love everything you see, chances are something will tickle just the right visceral or intellectual spot. Performances that will pack the venue will include a one-man punk/gospel/big-beat band, psychedelic video segments from the Internet art scene, an interactive performance responding to pop-culture art and queer stand-up comedy.
