Chicago Artists Coalition is pleased to present Free-Drumming, a solo exhibition by Chicago-based artist and 2022-2023 CAC Bolt Resident Sal Moreno

Sal Moreno’s “Free-drumming” combines emerging technologies with improvisational vocalized and percussive rhythm, and invites viewers into a multidimensional exploration of sound, visuals, and cultural symbolism. Moreno integrates motion-capture, AI-image generation, digital fabrication, and extended reality, as a means to challenge the regimented culture of marching bands, unlocking new possibilities for creative expression and dismantling biases ingrained within the field. Drawing from his Mexican-American heritage and his own experience in drumline, this exhibition delves into cosmic realms, futuristic landscapes, and post-human rituals, blurring the boundaries between the physical and the digital realms.

Event is free and open to the public.
