To pay homage to their partnership in recent months, The Current has curated the newly renovated Popop Studios for Transforming Spaces 2019. The team invited Popop alumni artists to submit works that encompass the show’s theme POPOP FOREVER. Artworks within the exhibition reflect upon each artist’s time at Popop Studios: whether it be older works created at Popop, or more recent works that recall a style or series connoted with their time at Popop. Also included in the exhibition are artworks that make visual reference to Popop’s physicality, residents or the transformation process. Overall, this body of work reflects a system of sustainability within the art community over decades, while speaking to Popop’s role in facilitating the sustenance of numerous art practices and careers.
Transforming Spaces (TS) 2019 is gearing up for its annual art bus tour which will be taking place on Saturday and Sunday, April 6 and 7, with tickets available at the NAGB, Doongalik, and The Place For Art.
