Doppler Shift is a large group show that explores the illusion of difference between two-and three-dimensional space. The title refers to the Doppler Effect—a change in the frequency of emitted waves relative to an observer. The artists have created works that straddle the liminal space between flat and dimensional, where images seem to move and shift, often triggering optical or other sensory effects. 

The exhibition features painting, sculpture, video, drawing, and site-specific works by 26 artists from the United States and Europe. A fully-illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition, featuring essays by New York-based art critic, Thomas Micchelli, and Art Center curator, Mary Birmingham. 

Featured artists: Steven Baris, Richard Bottwin, Edgar Diehl, Gabriele Evertz, Kevin Finklea, Enrico Gomez, Brent Hallard, Jos√© Heerkens, Gilbert Hsiao, Gracia Khouw, Sarah Klein & David Kwan, Stephen Maine, Joanne Mattera, Rob de Oude, Gay Outlaw, Mel Prest, Debra Ramsay, Albert Roskam, Karen Schifano, Iemke van Dijk, Henri√ętte van 't Hoog, Ruth van Veenen, Don Voisine, Nancy White, Guido Winkler, and Patricia Zarate.
