Author: Zachary Vickers

On May 23, 2019, in the Tyler School of Art’s Green Hallway Gallery, Philadelphia Sculptors hosted the opening of its 20th annual 5 into 1 exhibition (on view through June 23, 2019). The show features the work of some of the best up-and-coming artists who have graduated from five local institutions: the Moore College of Art & Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the University of the Arts, the University of Pennsylvania and Tyler. This year, Philadelphia Sculptors—the only professional organization of sculptors in the Philadelphia region, which expands public awareness of the role and value of sculpture within our culture—broadened its parameters for the exhibition beyond students who have graduated solely from sculpture programs. Curators selected artists who promote sculptural thinking and movement, spanning many disciplines and areas of study.  Read More

Adjunct Professor Frances Beaver in SITE Seeing at Little Berlin

Author: tuj81552

SITE Seeing is a show about challenging the constructs of time and space and the potential to create new realities. Shifting possibilities of the real offers political agency and promise of new utopias. It is easy for us to imagine what could go wrong; and to see what has already gone wrong, but while we fight for a better world, it’s important to dream about what could be. The artists in this show slice through the fabric of reality to give us a glimpse of what could be on the other side.

Fibers Tech and Printmaking Alumni Amy Cousins solo show at Illinois State University

Author: Anonymous

You Will Never Have the Comfort of Our Silence Again August 18 – October 8, 2017 Amy Cousins’ large-scale sculptures and installations are based on her research into rare protest ephemera, out-of-print feminist newspapers, and first-person accounts of radical queer histories. From the Lesbian Feminist Declaration of 1976 to the Gay Liberation Dances that emerged across the U.S. in the 1970s, Cousins reimagines these remarkable yet poorly documented events and reveals captivating examples of inventiveness in queer protest. Her sculptural reinterpretations are produced with a range of processes and materials: wall hung appliqué textile figures, text made from shag fabric, a ten-foot-tall papier-mâché puppet, and an off-kilter tufted patent leather vinyl vitrine—complete with kinky lavender fur—to name a few.
