Jaxon Pallas and the Museum of Contemporary Art - Chicago invited the Carl Schurz Art Department to become a partner in art education. Seven Chicago artists were invited by the MCA to present their work to the AP art class at Schurz High School and develop a plan to help the students create work in response to the presentations.
During my classroom visit, I presented What is Acting? a series of interviews asking specific participants (a visual artist, a runway model, and my mother) questions about acting in everyday life. After showing the work to the Schurz students, I asked them to generate their own questions regarding acting in everyday life, and sent them out to interview one another using their cellphones as a recording device. The piece is a depiction of a set of students at a time in their life when they are starting to look outside of themselves for acceptance, individualism, and appreciation.
