ACTION KITS is an exhibition of new interactive artworks by five artists. Each of these works takes the form of a kit – a coordinated set of things that have been assembled to be experienced by visitors to the exhibition.
To create these interactive systems, five South End-area professionals have been paired with five artists. Each professional was asked the same five questions about their personal working methodologies and problem-solving philosophies. Their answers have been translated by their paired artist into an interactive kit. The completed ACTION KITS will be on exhibit in the gallery alongside the original questions and answers.
