The Museum of Contemporary Art (MCASB) presents its newest exhibition, “Shift, Stretch, Expand: Everyday Transformations,” at its satellite location at Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara. The exhibition will be on display at Hotel Indigo (121 State St.) until Jan. 22, 2017. The opening reception will be held on Sat., Feb. 20 from 6–8 p.m.

“Shift, Stretch, Expand” features nine Santa Barbara County artists (Phil Argent, Weslie Ching, Petra Cortright, George Legrady, Kyra Lehman, Rebekah Miles, Maria Rendón, Stephanie Washburn and Russell Young) who focus on conditions of transformation, including points at which limits are questioned, thresholds are crossed, frames of reference are destabilized, and expectations are subverted.

The exhibition will invite visitors throughout the interior and exterior spaces of Hotel Indigo to view and experience a wide range of multifaceted works by each artist. Working in areas such as a stairwell corner or the lobby, the artists experiment with new territories of production and display, expanding their practices by utilizing diverse materials and playing with scale.
