Nearly a year after Transformer’s December 1, 2010 storefront screening of an edited version of David Wojnarowicz’s A Fire in My Belly , screened in a direct response to the Smithsonian Institutions’ censorship of a similar work from the National Portrait Gallery’s Hide/Seek exhibition, Transformer revisits the use of our storefront space as a way to interact with audiences through the sidewalk presentation & viewing of video.

Working in collaboration with a diverse range of artists and organizations in the development of this program, Transformer launches Storefront Video this Saturday, October 29, 2011 with works from the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum’s ARTLAB+ program, a design studio for teens (www.artlabplus.si.edu).  ARTLAB+ guest filmmaker Akosua Adoma Owusu, curator of the ARTLAB+ Film Forum program, has guest curated a special selection of Film Forum videos especially for Transformer’s Storefront Video exhibition.

This first selection of Storefront Video works to be screened beginning at noon on Saturday, October 29 through 11:59am on Monday, October 31, include: Camel Tooth Curtain, 2005 by CamLAB (a Jemima Wyman and Anna Mayer Collaboration) and Inside Out, 2010 by Candice Lin. Additional works from the ARTLAB+ Film Forum program, as well as works by teen participants of ARTLAB+ will screen each weekend throughout the run of Storefront Video.

Storefront Video Exhibition Hours:  Works will be on view 24 hours a day, 7 days a week beginning Saturday, October 29 at noon.  New works will screen Mon – Saturday at noon.  A full schedule will be released weekly on Transformer’s new website www.transformerdc.org & our facebook page.
