In 2018, Transformer initiated Transformer Radio, an online radio & podcast program produced in collaboration with Full Service Radio at The LINE DC. Transformer Radio, much like their Framework Panel Series, is intended to provide an oral ‘field guide’ to artists & audiences on current & best practices in contemporary visual art.
Presented 3-5 times a year, Transformer co-Founder, Executive & Artistic Director Victoria Reis, interviews DC, national, and international artists on their work, process, and craft. These interviews often coincide with exhibitions & programs Transformer is presenting, providing deeper context to works on view.
This show records and broadcasts LIVE on Full Service Radio from the lobby of the LINE DC in Adams Morgan, Washington DC.
