Transformer Station is a contemporary art museum located in Ohio City that presents the work of nationally and internationally recognized artists, and engages audiences with innovative experiences through its inspiring and thought provoking events and programming. Founded in 2013 by independent collectors and local philanthropists Fred and Laura Ruth Bidwell, the Transformer Station has quickly become an anchor for contemporary art on Cleveland’s West Side. Motivated to bring museum-quality works to a historically underrepresented part of Cleveland, the 7,500 sq. ft. facility is a space for contemporary art exhibitions, installations and performances. Exhibitions at the Transformer Station highlight work from the Bidwell’s personal collection in addition to new work commissioned specifically for the museum space.

A.K. Burns exhibits two sculptures made of crushed and painted chain-link fencing outside the Transformer Station. Set in relief against the shifting fortunes and economies of Hingetown, this work comments on the gentrification in the area.

Conceptual artist Stephen Willats displays a recent work, Human Right, both in the gallery and outside in the neighborhood. This work of text, film, and photography examines the relationship between personal narratives and social conditions in Middlesbrough, England, a mid-sized and post-industrial city.

The FRONT Film Program 

FRONT International’s film program, housed in a purpose-built theater inside the
 Crane Gallery, focuses on cinematic works produced by artists and filmmakers in Ohio and elsewhere. The feature-length films, videos, and film shorts presented there in scheduled screenings amplify the theme of the triennial—An American City—uniting artists and issues across the many venues of FRONT and around the globe.
