“The Co-Prosperity Sphere (C-PS) is an experimental cultural center located in Bridgeport, The Community of the Future.
The Sphere is a public platform for art and ideas and an advocate for emerging art in all its forms. We produce exhibitions, socially engaged projects, critical publications and community initiatives. The C-PS hosts exhibitions, screenings, presentations, installations, festivals, meetings, classes and performance programs in its 5,000+ square foot complex.
From our space we build independent cultural infrastructures to maintain a healthy art ecology for Chicago and our region.
The C-PS contains the offices of the Public Media Institute; our parent .org that is a 501 (c)3 non profit arts organization. PMI helps produce the annual Version Festival and Select Media Festival; the art magazines Proximity, Pr, Matériel and Lumpen magazine.
C-PS contains a few artist studios, as well as an international artist residency program. We also help facilitate two satellite spaces: Eastern Expansion, and Northern Exposure.
