INTERACTION is an exhibition that explores how Canadian artists and designers are engaging the public through interactivity. The presented works are both material art objects as well as interactive systems that are designed to be realised by an active viewer, one that co-creates, participates, and engages versus passively consuming media. The works in this show invite critical reflection by engaging the body and the mind, with playful and open-ended encounters, sensorially rich experiences, and immersive environments. The selected works use both old and new technologies in order to imagine the future, explore the context of our technological present, critically reflect on digital culture, and engage the body on a sensorial and experiential level.
INTERACTION is a multi-modal art exhibition that will take place at THEMUSEUM in downtown Kitchener (ON), and will also extend into the sister cities of Kitchener and Waterloo (ON) at Communitech and the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI). The exhibition and related programming will run through January 26th to May 13th, 2018.
The opening for INTERACTION is January 25th from 5-9 pm.
