Curated by: Skye Gilkerson
Opening Reception: Friday December 9, 2011 7pm-10pm

As protesters congregate in cities around the world, it’s clear that economic and political frustrations are cresting, and many people long for change. Common access to tools and media allows new perceptions to grow, and kindles the desire for collective and individual empowerment. Four artists with divergent practices wave their magic wands to create transformations of all kinds. Embracing wonder and surprise, they challenge reality through interventions to everyday life, shift perspectives through adaptations to architecture and space, and question what is malleable by attempting transformations of the self.
