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.
Lucky number 15. October's Response Project looks at Frida Kahlo's 1939 painting, "Las Dos Fridas" also known as "The Two Fridas," a double self-portrait, depicting two versions of Kahlo seated together.
We are beyond thrilled to present the fourteenth installment of The Chase Public Response Project, in which our esteemed assembly of respondents will be focused on the Beach Boys 1966 hit, “God Only Knows.” Written and produced by Brian Wilson and Tony Asher, “God Only Knows” was released as the eighth track on the album Pet Sounds.
A 1990 political cartoon from the Mapplethorpe Trial by Jim Borgman depicts an officer-involved drunk driving accident in one frame. In the other frame, a sign outside Cincinnati’s Contemporary Arts Center reads “Art Show Today.” Above the two frames is the question, “Guess which case the city prosecutor decided to pursue?”
Jim Borgman is an American cartoonist, known primarily for his political cartoons and nationally syndicated strip “Zits.” In 1991, he won a Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning.
