From ArtPlace, March 27, 2012:“Rebuild Foundation, an art and culture based nonprofit organization founded and led by artist Theaster Gates Jr., is currently reactivating an abandoned two story home in south side Chicago into a mixed used space for film and media based artists of color. The home is being called “Black Cinema House” (BCH) and will serve as an intimate film-screening house in the Chicago’s Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood. The BCH will be dedicated to showcasing films of the black diaspora and highlighting the work of great film artists of color. Dorchester Projects is collaborating with the Chicago Film Archives and South Side Projections to ensure that BCH can offer an archive of black, rare, and local films to their community.”
