Transformer presents

Saturday, July 14 – Saturday, August 18, 2018

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, July 14, 6:00 -8:00 pm

Transformer is proud to present A Body to Follow – the culminating exhibition of our 15th Annual Exercises for Emerging Artists Program – E15: FIBERS, featuring artists Aliana Grace BaileyRachel SchechtmanDulcina Abreu, and Alanna Reeves.

Founded in 2004, Transformer’s Exercises For Emerging Artists is an annual peer critique & mentorship program created to support a selected group of DC-based emerging artists each year who are at critical points or crossroads in their professional growth and creative development. 

Focusing on a different artistic discipline each year, E15 brought together four emerging artists, focused on fiber and textile as medium, history, and 'a means of survival', for rigorous peer & mentor critique as they created new work. Through new installation-based projects, varying in material, production, and sustainability, A Body to Follow explores issues surrounding the body, security, and identity, and their connection to nature and family.
