Hot Wheelz Festival is a live art platform set out to burn rubber, speed up, slow down, dodge cones and redefine acceleration. 

We host virtual week-long residencies for Chicago curators, spaces, and collectives to create live programming while loosely approaching the question, “How do we keep moving?”. Each residency includes a Hot Wheelz Festival website page takeover as well as live programming across our different platforms. Through these varying responses a visual “road map” will be created that connects a coalition of diverse live work in Chicago.


Miss any of the residencies from our fall lineup? We’re super excited to announce you can now experience archived versions of the work through our Roadmap Archive!
