the art institute of chicago


Art does not exist without the viewer.

'We Are Art' gallery at The Art Institute of Chicago will show museum patrons how important they are to the art making process by reflecting their reactions back to them as interactive artwork.  


Prints will use actual photographs taken from the exhibit, and labeled with the artwork the subject is viewing.



Live video feed from the museum galleries will stream to billboards at Chicago transit stations. 


Crown Fountain, located one block from The Art Institute of Chicago, will show the viewer on one side

and the artwork they are viewing on the other.
