Transform – A physical and virtual space to promote growth and change

Transform comes to the Painted Bride Art Center location 230 Vine Street, April 12th, 2019 at 5 pm

The Binder Project makes its curatorial debut at the Painted Bride Art Center with a collective exhibition of 20 artists from a variety of disciplines. This latest project, Transform, will be on view for one-week beginning with their reception Friday, April 12th, 5-9 pm.

Transform features work that explores the effects of growth and change and how everyday experiences, places, beliefs, and stories can be transformative. The Binder Project is in itself a transformative endeavor tackling the discourse of physical vs. virtual exhibition spaces. The team has worked to mirror the concept of the exhibition, enlisting technology that transforms the conventional gallery space into a widely-accessible digital reality.

The Binder Project is part of an ongoing experiment in the possibilities of the online curatorial enterprise. Created by Grace Harmer, a senior Art History student at Tyler School of Art, The Binder Project aims to build relationships between underrepresented and emerging artists while generating an accessible digital space for their works to flourish and be seen around the globe.

The Collection of Artists consists of:

  • Auqilla Abdulqhani
  • Nathanael Assega
  • Kristian Burks
  • Louise Diamond
  • Jessica Dueck
  • Jeff Gordon
  • Ali Graulty
  • James Haitchwai
