CURRENT EXHIBITIONS


October 25, 2019 – January 19, 2020

Undercurrents is an immersive exhibition of photobooks from around the globe that explores the imperceptible, invisible, and often chaotic forces that shape the world around us and how we choose to interpret them. This exhibition is co-organized by Melissa Catanese and Ed Panar (Spaces Corners, Pittsburgh) with Caitie Moore (Transformer Station & Nomadic Bookshelf, Cleveland) who have selected works that explore our uncertain present and unknowable future. Viewers are invited to visit strangely familiar yet otherworldly landscapes, experience introspective abstractions, […]

Surface Tension encourages us to see our relationship with everyday technology in unexpected ways by highlighting the marks we leave on glass screens we routinely ignore or erase. The subjects pictured beneath the surface of her photographs reflect our culture, whereas the smears and markings of fingerprints record our physical movements and fleeting attention. Surface Tension, Soren’s first solo museum exhibition, will travel to Transformer Station in October following its debut at The Davis Museum at Wellesley College. The Transformer […]

February 15 – May 17, 2020

A photograph “takes the world and makes it into something else,” says Aaron Rothman, whose interest lies in transformative rather than documentary photography. This exhibition surveys 10 years of Rothman’s studies of the landscape of the American West, a region with which he has a deep and long-standing personal relationship. Don’t expect majestic, distant vistas of desert moonrises or sheer rock faces. Rothman instead looks up at the sky and down at scrubland, humbler rocks, and foliage. Through analog and […]

Having lived in Los Angeles for the last three decades, she now returns to Cleveland to develop an exhibition in collaboration with high […]

“A parking violation is the act of parking a motor vehicle in a restricted place or for parking in an unauthorized manner.” (Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) Prohaska’s work often uses found materials re-purposed with transgressive humor. This sculptural installation overturns our notions of sculpture and demonstrates the power of art to question our assumptions about the urban landscape and public space. This work was commissioned by Transformer Station and conceived and installed by the artist during a three-month residency […]

Although photographic images existed long before, the birth of photography is marked by the date when we learned to “fix” a representative image on to a light sensitive surface permanently. Since then, the truth of photographic representation has been often questioned and much discussed. Less debated, but just as questionable is the permanence of the photographic image. Of course, eventually, all surfaces decay and all images fade, but the artists in this exhibition embrace the fleeting nature of the image […]

The Akron Art Museum shared some of the highlights of its collection with Northeast Ohio for the first time, in the fall of 2015. Works included in Choice: Contemporary Art from the Akron Art Museum testify to the role that groundbreaking exhibitions for artists, among them Cleveland’s Julian Stanczak, and prescient purchases, including El Anatsui’s Dzesi II in 2006, have played in the Akron Art Museum’s commitment to assembling an outstanding collection with modest resources. Artworks in Choice speak to […]
