HotHouse presents multi-arts events and showcases high caliber artists from throughout the world. We believe in the value of progressive cultural programming and focus on local, national, and international artists whose work would otherwise remain under-recognized and isolated. We choose to position ourselves at the margin of the mainstream, and seek to promote the widening of the cultural marketplace in Chicago.
Since our inception in 1987, we have programmed over 6,000 culturally and socially relevant events, and gained an international reputation for our programming expertise. Most recently, HotHouse has partnered with other venues across Chicago and taken our performances to a variety of different Chicago neighborhoods. We are currently searching for a new permanent space of our own.
