Break Time Contemplations: Transformer 8th Annual Storefront Exhibition

Break Time Contemplations: Transformer 8th Annual Storefront Exhibition
Aristeidis Lappas
October 29 – December 10, 2018

Transformer is pleased to present its 8th Annual Storefront Installation, debuting the first U.S exhibition by emerging contemporary Greek artist, Aristeidis Lappas.

Presented in conjunction with Transformer's 15th Annual Silent Auction & Benefit Party, this exhibition is part of Transformer’s year-long artistic exchange with Greece, presenting DC-based artists’s work at the Platforms Project art fair in Athens Spring 2018, and now highlighting Greek artists’s works in Washington, DC - both through Lappas’ storefront installation, as well as through a curated selection of works by emerging Greek artists featured in this year's Auction. 

In the installation Break Time Contemplations, Lappas explores how recognizable forms from our everyday experiences can be abstracted into compositions on canvas as well as within space. Looking at the time in between work as moments of introspection during the daily routine, the artist presents a scene as viewed from a withdrawn space where the audience is invited to draw alternative narratives in a humorous way. With this piece, the artist aims to stress the importance of imagination in our daily lives.

EXHIBITION HOURS: This storefront installation will be on view October 29 – December 10, 2018
