View Full Series

Transformer's 13th annual Collector’s View series shares the private collections of a select and diverse group of DC’s prominent contemporary art collectors. 

For the past 12 years, Transformer has presented Collector’s View as a spring series of private receptions in the homes of a select and diverse group of DC’s prominent contemporary art collectors. In April/May 2020, as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Transformer reimagined this year’s Collector’s View series as short, self-filmed videos (approx. 5 minute each), provided by an eclectic mix of invited collector Hosts. Each of the 27 video Views in the series is as unique as our collector Hosts -  providing intimate, insider perspectives on the motivations, interests, and passions behind a favorite artwork in their home that inspires them. 

Initially presented via subscription series June 22 – July 22, 2020, with a new video released each weekday, Transformer is thrilled to now share the full Collector’s View 2020 ReImagined Video Showcase


Videos are presented in alphabetical order of Hosts' names.
