On Monday, July 29, 2019, Miss Alex White performed in the third annual Soho House Mixtape project. Her song, “Gone Wise” is a true collaboration and execution on vision. Olivia Koivisto from Writing Club wrote the lyrics, Miss Alex White arranged the song and melody, Tony Scott-Green wrote the guitar hook, Mark and Rob locked down the rhythm section, J. Ivy contributed spoken word poetry to the bridge, the Music Club shouted gang vocals, then Sam Fishkin recorded and mixed the track. Veronica Kretzers created an entire bespoke outfit for Miss Alex White, then Robbie Botts shot the video on a 1990s camcorder at the Liar’s Club in Chicago. Listen to it here:
The Chicago Greek Town SSA commissioned Miss Alex White from White Mystery to customize a column for their outdoor art project on Halsted Street. Her vision was to deconstruct the column from its traditional form into a contemporary design object, with stark, colorful contrasts, and a chevron pattern. Alex teamed up with her collaborator Steven Teichelman, owner of Threefold Chicago, to spray paint the plaster sculpture, inspired by Pink Floyd’s iconic “Dark Side of the Moon” album art.
View the art project, “Dark Side of the Discus,” on display at 128 S. Halsted, Chicago.
