Author: Emily Herbein

Phil Le (TYL ‘22) made his graduation day extra special by proposing to his girlfriend of eight years, Olivia Colacicco (TYL ‘21), at Tyler’s commencement reception surrounded by friends, family, and former professors.   Since meeting in their high school’s graphic design class, the two bonded over their shared love for the digital art world, and when Colacicco went on to pursue her BFA at Tyler, Le was encouraged to attend the year after. From weekend visits to late night studio work sessions, Le quickly came to appreciate what life at Temple University would be like, and the fact that he would share a major with Colacicco was an added bonus.   Read More

Erin Riley-Lopez wins CHAT award for spring 2023

Author: Jane DeRose Evans

Erin Riley-Lopez (PhD candidate) received a 2022-2023 Advanced Graduate Scholars Fellowship at the Center for Humanities at Temple (CHAT). The fellowship will support Riley-Lopez’s completion of research as well as the drafting of additional chapters for her dissertation "Queering the Museum: Utopian Futurity in Contemporary Exhibitions", which excavates artists, artworks, and exhibition histories that exist outside of the canon by focusing on three very recent exhibition case studies. Positing a queer institutional critique that offers a model for not only future exhibition making but also art history, Riley-Lopez contends that these exhibitions offer world building for a better and more sustainable future for queer artists and artworks both inside and beyond the museums’ walls. Riley-Lopez is particularly excited to work in the bi-weekly seminars with a group of PhD candidates in other disciplines at Temple because of the work she does along interdisciplinary lines.
