spontaneous collaborations connecting train passengers and a musician, art and music.
What if a subway musician offers more than just entertainment for a dollar? What if it’s an opportunity for connection between the train passenger and performer? Will people express their experience with classical music if it was spontaneous and in public?
In winter of 2017, I explored these questions in the Chicago subways (a.k.a. The “L”) and invited passersby to create communal art while they listened to classical music from different time periods. The art created is beautiful and fascinating. The connections I made with people in the subways is priceless.
I presented this art collection at the Redux Contemporary Art Gallery in Charleston, SC. This interactive exhibition includes an art collection, musical performance, and an opportunity for the viewer to be expressive in creating a communal work of art.
