TRANSCEIVER is an exhibition of works are sent entirely by non-traditional means. Artists from across the US and abroad have been asked to send work via chat, Skype, email, FTP, streaming audio, radio, Twitter, telegram, and Bluetooth. These works, many of which integrate their means of transmission into their structure and content, suggest a non-geographically-centered model. Instead, they suggest the potential for curators and institutions operating within modest budgets and regional locations to mount expansive international shows that challenge traditional structures of what an exhibition and gallery can be.

Transceiver marks the first installment in an open series of exhibitions in the Bemis Underground that highlight regional artist-run spaces and curatorial projects. Sitting at the forefront of creative placemaking, artist-run spaces and initiatives have played a large hand in re-purposing countless spaces and neighborhoods around the world.

Transceiver will continue at Drift Station, featuring a low-power FM radio station that will operate through the month of February, as well as live projections from webcams around the world.
