Join Transformer for the Opening Reception of Interspatial, a group show curated by Quota. Founded by Dawne Langford and Avi Gupta, Quota is a curatorial collaboration dedicated to broadening cultural diversity in public discourse around artistic creation and representation. In this group exhibition, artists Rachel Schmidt, Johab Silva, and Levester Williams explore the concept of spaces, both real and imagined with responses to changing or unfamiliar landscapes and restrictive environments.

Interspatial presents multiple interpretations of space by examining elements that define and create transformation. Spatial placement can be used to enforce power structures, resulting in a seemingly intractable system, making change and responsibility difficult. “’Space’ can also be a moment of expansion, leading to clarity and innovation,” says Langford. From self-identity to our balance with nature, boundaries of confinement permeate our ability to traverse any given arena. Do we try to fit in or redefine what these spaces are?

Exhibition Hours:

  • Wednesday – Saturday, 12-6pm
  • and by appointment

Transformer is located at 1404 P Street NW. For more details see the full press release or visit www.transformerdc.org.
