TransCultural Exchange, the Boston-based organization that has made global connections through art, is planning to take its message local with Shimmer. Every Saturday in November, from noon to five at TransCultural Exchange’s South Boston studio, this juried exhibition will display works by more than two-dozen artists from countries on several continents. Pieces range from a mirrored landscape by the Latvian photographer Vineta Kaulača, exploring “the relationship between discontinuity and continuity,” to a diver submerged in a plastic cup by the German sculptor Sasha Schwartz. Whether created by individuals from Massachusetts or from Australia, the artwork invites viewers to look beyond traditional boundaries—between media, cultures, styles—to discover surprising resonances.

Past projects by this maverick non-profit have included: The Coaster Project, Destination: The World for which artist-made coasters were exhibited and then distributed at sites from Antarctica to Finland; and The Tile Project, Destination: The World which united the world with 22 international installations of tiles by more than 100 artists. Singled out for recognition by UNESCO, among others, TransCultural Exchange is constantly exploring ways to let art build bridges and promote understanding. Shimmer translates that alluring idea into a collection that dazzles visually and conceptually.
