About

This unique four-month series of performances, interactive installations, and sound pieces explores the evolving relationship between artwork and audience. Each week through May 1, Interactions features an artist or group of artists—most of whom are Chicago-based—who create innovative ways to connect with viewers. By incorporating the audience in the conception, production, or presentation of their artwork, they expand how we experience performance, visual and sonic art, as well as communal interaction.
