“TRANSFORMATION features works from the prestigious private collections of Carlos Garcia-Velez, Allen Thomas, Larry Wheeler, as well as Hedy Fischer and Randy Schull, Chandra and Jimmie Johnson and the private collections of The North Carolina Art Museum. By bridging the gap of conventional and contemporary photographic modalities, TRANSFORMATION seamlessly weaves the past and present, the masculine and feminine, to reveal nuanced realities of our ever-changing world. The curation of renowned photographers, such as Hiroshi Sugimoto, Mickalene Thomas, Vera Lutter, Eve Sussman, and Vik Muniz, highlights transformation with a permanence by emphasizing metamorphosis as a sustained moment of innovation and learning, rather than a fleeting consequence of change.

The photographers featured in TRANSFORMATION detail their own accounts of change, whether in their lived experience, or made possible in their photographic practices. The exhibition imagines a third space of transformation that holds the ebbs and flows of a shifting world. Presenting an invitation to question surrounding realities of the present-day moment, TRANSFORMATION simultaneously encourages audiences with the limitless possibilities of a hopeful tomorrow. ”
