Finally,an exhibit that appreciates me, the patron. He who toddles about curiously amidst the likes of steel rabbits and Turkish women. Art is just more fun this way... when you can experience it, trigger its movements, laugh at the artist as he laughs back, touch, crawl, and simply interact with it. This, it seemed, was the point of Without You I'm Nothing: Art and Its Audience, which we caught at the MCA Chicago a couple weeks ago.
"(The exhibit) explores the continually evolving relationship between artwork and audience. The viewer's experience has become a central concern for many artists as contemporary culture becomes more interactive and collaborative - and, as a result, more engaged."
