The Transversal Project was founded to create opportunities for experimental public art exhibitions using time-based media through collaborations between artists, institutions and the community at large. The project takes its name from Giles Deleuze’s notion of the “transversal”—the idea that narratives can be driven by the generative relationships between different things, between the many.
The goals of our mission are:
-To create opportunities for artists to make and display artworks in the context of the built environment.
-To heighten critical public discourse surrounding the importance of art making and cultural production.
-To offer an alternative mode of exhibition to the typical gallery and/or museum.
-To create a public forum for the exploration of art as a communal and projective experience.
-To facilitate and foster collaborations between artists, institutions and the community at large.
All exhibitions are free and open to the public.
