Tamar Ettun wants viewers to interact with her art. Don’t handle everything haphazardly, but consider your relationship to the photographs, sculptures, and videos currently on display at Transformer. The pieces in this exhibition are culled from the artist’s larger New York installation, “Performing Stillness,” and both shows invite viewers to think about which pieces are still and which generate movement. The goal, Ettun writes in her statement, is to “evoke the memories of a physical sensation or movement.” Read more >>> The exhibition is on view Wednesdays through Saturdays noon to 6 p.m. to Oct. 25 at Transformer Gallery, 1404 P St. NW. Free. (202) 483-1102. transformerdc.org. (Caroline Jones)
