Closing Day + Artist Talk: Thursday, June 30 from 6pm to 7pm
Join IceBox Collective artist Courtney Applequist and Nomadic House Project collaborator Irene Clouthier for an artist talk, presented at Transformer and on Transformer’s IG Live on Thursday, June 30th at 6pm.
The Nomadic House, as a symbol of home and shelter, evokes issues emerging around quarantine, climate crisis, conflict, and displacement. The concept of home, homelessness, transience – being rooted or unrooted – are increasingly threatened, as we watch the war in Ukraine unfold. The Nomadic House can manifest as a mobile shrine, a contemporary museum, a community space, a meditation space, a place for critical thought and healing dialogue. Transformer is providing an activation site for The Nomadic House, collaborating on programming to catalyze dialogue and action to benefit the victims of the war, both in the immediate and in the aftermath when the conflict no longer occupies the headlines, supporting displaced communities and people trying to restart their lives.
Transformer is located at 1404 P St NW.
