The exhibition “Transforming Existence” by the university’s School of Art + Design includes both works inspired by Surrealism’s icons and contemporary approaches, employing imagery depicting the absurd or strange in an effort to promote introspection.
“Academic research and education greatly inform the exhibitions at the Downtown Gallery,” said Chantel Paul, director of the gallery. “Visitors to the gallery will be able to see both the academic and artistic process involved in creating a final product.”
Transforming Existence is the fourth in an annual series of exhibitions inspired by SDSU’s campus-wide initiative, the Common Experience. This year’s theme is “Experience Imagination.”
The exhibition runs through April 8. The gallery at 725 West Broadway downtown is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Monday. Admission is free.
