Inspired by Pianist Brianna Matzke’s “The Stockhausen Response Project,” The Chase Public Response Project is an opportunity for creators and audiences to interact with art in a new way.

Writers, artists, performers, and thinkers are assembled to give their interpretation and share their impressions of the piece for that response; they are given free range to do so by any means they choose. Everyone is in dialogue with the same piece. Since responses aren't shared beforehand, responses are often in surprising conversations with each other. At the event, respondents share their responses with the assembled audience.
