Tang: Freedom & Its Owner

October 30, 2010 - December 04, 2010


Continuing our commitment to highlight the work of exceptional DC-based emerging artists in a solo exhibition format, Transformer's 8th Annual DC Artist Solo Exhibition presented the work of Señor Tangcito (aka Tang) in his first solo exhibition.

Inspired by the people and places he encounters on his international travels, Tang took over Transformer's project space with a bold, highly-stylized and meticulously-rendered site-specific installation. The colorful, geometric, landscape-evoking shapes Tangicito painted on the walls of Transformer's project space provided the backdrop for more intricately rendered drawings and installation details: small architectural elements, various drawn characters, and minimal text, all of which communicated a celebratory, diaristic interpretation of the wonder he has experienced in his travels.
