The Transformative Surface is the first group exhibition of its kind at the UNM Art Museum to feature innovative new media, video, and sound works of art by nine faculty artists from the departments of Art & Art History and Interdisciplinary Film and Digital Media, and six guest artists from San Francisco and Santa Fe: Jim Campbell, Bruce Nauman, Daniel Reeves, Peter Sarkisian, Woody Vasulka and Gail Wight.  As a component of the ISEA12 Albuquerque: Machine Wilderness symposium, the UNMAM exhibition will present fifteen works that may be classified as ‘the canonical and the new’ in video art and large-scale new media installations.  Characterized by the infinite possibilities of transformative surfaces, these works of art vary from the wholly optical or aural, interactive and malleable, or, a combination of the seen, heard, and felt, inspired by ancient, natural, and urban environments and paradigms, and the body.

UNM Faculty included in The Transformative Surface exhibition are as follows:
Bill Gilbert, Catherine Harris, Szu-Han Ho, Shaurya Kumar, Patrick Manning, R. Lee Montgomery, Andrea Polli, Mary Tsiongas and Claudia X. Valdes.

The exhibition has been organized by Mary Tsiongas, Michele Penhall and E. Luanne McKinnon.
