On display in the Frederic S. and Ogden Martin Concourse Gallery.

"A conversation piece—something that sparks our curiosity, initiates dialogue, generates a response—the expression was originally attached to works of art, specifically images of people engaging in informal social activities, in the familiar settings and rituals of everyday life. A part of this very narrow definition still resides in how we often think of art’s particular way of addressing us. Whether generating a question, requiring our response, our imagination, or our participation, we tend to distinguish art from other modes of communication by its open-endedness. Needless to say, this sense of art as a conversation piece has also resulted in artists making connection and communication a theme of their work. This selection of works from the permanent collection includes works that represent, produce, embody, warp, translate or sometimes frustrate connection and sociability."

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
