Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s “1984x1984,” will be included in North Carolina Museum of Art’s exhibit, “You Are Here: Light, Color and Sound Experiences.” This immersive exhibit will inhabit a floor of the temporary exhibition galleries, but also modify the landscape of the Ann and Jim Goodnight Museum Park. These works by 14 contemporary artists revolve around the participation or the presence of you, the viewer.

Consider this: The Triangle’s arts scene has never been more vibrant and alive. As we put together this special section, we didn’t just marvel at the variety of productions and exhibits that will be presented in the coming months. Because there is definitely plenty of variety among the plays, dance productions, art exhibits, concerts and comedy shows.

Instead, we couldn’t get over the innovation and creativity that goes into making all of this happen. As you’ll find out, more museums and venues are delving into interactive experiences. It’s about truly letting participants engage with the art, dance and theater they’re seeing, leaving a deeper feeling that will last long after it’s over. Thanks to two new venues – UNC’s Current ArtSpace + Studio and The Ruby at Duke – we now have more space for such events.

On these pages, you’ll also find world premieres, thought-provoking drama, concerts that move you, and comedians who will leave you laughing in stitches. So, circle everything you want to see.

We still have months before “Hamilton” arrives at the Durham Performing Arts Center.
