What are the components of a transformative art viewing experience? Critics have written volumes on the subject, but perhaps the most basic comes from the artistic impulse to mimic and to disorient through illusion and allusion. This show assembles a group of artists whose art challenges the viewer’s perception. Space collapses, materials look like other materials, gesture is scrutinized and transformed. In short, each work is infused with just a little bit of magic.
