2018 Méthode Room | Peggy Pierrot

French writer, activist, and researcher Peggy Pierrot is the 2018 resident of the Méthode Room for a research project in the South Side of Chicago, entitled Untold stories - conversations between the dead and the livings.

She is collaborating with different local institutions, such as Hyde Park Art Center, Experimental Station, Temporary Service Publishers, Dusable Museum of African-American History and Expo Chicago, inviting local communities to actively participate in her exhibitions through workshops, lectures, screenings, interviews, and radio programs. Pierrot is developping a multiform writing project that ties together her personal affective links to the city of Chicago with open dialogues between 'the living and the dead'.
