ARTIST TALK: Saturday, November 21, 2009; 4pm 
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, November 21, 2009; 5 - 8pm

Referencing cultural history and the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, Geoffrey Aldridge: Hole in the Wall at Transformer will feature a series of art interventions within our 14th Street, NW project space. DC-based artist Geoffrey Aldridge utilizes video, sculpture, and spatial interventions to create metaphorical moments of reflection that position relationships between identity construction and gay rights activism. Associating memory, perception, and identity, this installation of works at Transformer creates moments of reflection on the continuing struggle of the gay community for recognition and acceptance.

Transformer began working with Geoffrey Aldridge in spring 2009, presenting his brick project as part of Transformer's participation in NO SOUL FOR SALE - A Festival Of Independents (June 24-28, 2009), hosted by X-initiative at the former Dia Center for the Arts in Chelsea, New York, NY. The brick project was an interactive work that explored the creative and intellectual process of planning, fabricating, and executing an artistic concept from beginning to an unknown outcome.

EXHIBITION HOURS: Wednesday - Saturday, 1-7pm & by appointment*

*Transformer will be open by appointment only November 25-28, and December 23-26, 2009.
