Transformers Exhibit in the Artist's Space

The ASA has developed a travelling exhibiton entitled Transformers from the collection of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts. Seventeen mized media art works reference transformative acts and mysterious interventions that defy easy explanation. Shape shifting, magical inferences and surreal episodes populate teh chosen art works - occasionally twisting familiar subjects into the unfamiliar and back again. Modest in scale and not really like Hollywood's blockbuster film, this exhibition provides provocative and playful perspectives on nature, civilization, biology and other topical issues of our time.
