Pow! Bang! Kaboom! With the physicality of a creative explosive blast, the works of these artists are strikingly dynamic, vibrant, and intensely engaging. Their installations and performance immerse us in a language of spirited invention through the metamorphosis of space and transfiguration of the body. wats:ON? 2015 explores the power of art that engages our minds, engulfs our senses, and invades our psyche.
