On view now 2:46 and thereafter
Thursday, February 16th - Sunday, March 25th

Developed in collaboration with Tokyo based artist collective DANDANS, Transformer is honored to present 2:46 and thereafter - an exhibition highlighting 18 emerging Japanese artists' responses to the March 2011 earthquake & tsunamis that struck the northeast coast of Japan, and the resulting aftermath.

The title of the exhibition, 2:46 and thereafter, marks the time the earthquake hit, referenced throughout Japan in the same vein Americans now reference the date 9/11.

Transformer will also present a closing reception for 2:46 and thereafter on March 24, 2012 from 6-8pm, with a special performance by On Megumi Akiyoshi, as part of the official opening weekend activities of the National Cherry Blossom Festival.
