In 2008, Matthew Goulish and Lin Hixson founded the Chicago-based performance company, Every house has a door. Every house convenes diverse, inter-generational project-specific teams of specialists, including emerging as well as internationally recognized artists. Drawn to historically or critically neglected subjects, Every house creates performance works and performance-related projects in many media. Their works in collaboration with Helsinki-based artist Essi Kauslainen include the performance Scarecrow (2017), and the multi-year multi-media Carnival of the Animals project, dedicated to endangered and extinct species. In 2022 to 2023, they co-published Selected Plays of Jay Wright Volumes 1, 2 and 3 with Kenning Editions. They co-curated, with Caroline Picard, the exhibition Reckless Rolodex, January 13 to March 18, 2023, at University of Illinois at Chicago Gallery 400, assembling contemporary responses to the archival records of the artist Lawrence Steger (1963 to 1999).
