An expansive group exhibition highlighting the current work of 15 Corcoran alumni  – specifically those that graduated between 2002-2010 – who have helped to define Transformer’s exhibition program aesthetic since its inception, now in its 10th exhibition season.

Featuring new works by Corcoran alumni who launched their professional artistic careers at Transformer, participating artists include: Reuben Bresslar, Breck Brunson, Jessica Cebra, Natalie W. Cheung, Cynthia Connolly, Jennifer De Palma, Nilay Lawson, Hatnim Lee, Marissa Long, Maki Maruyama, Solomon Sanchez, Mica Scalin, Zach Storm, Tang, and Jason Zimmerman.  This exhibition is a celebration of Transformer’s mission as a catalyst & advocate for emerging expression in the visual arts, and the many Corcoran College alumni Transformer has worked with over the past ten years. 

In tandem with this exhibition at the Corcoran, Transformer will present a companion exhibition Transformers: The Next Generation at its 1404 P Street, NW project space highlighting new works by five selected 2011 artist graduates of the Corcoran: Forest Allread, Pavlos Karalis, Sarah Robbins, Aris Slater, and Victoria Shaheen.
