Bitter sweet moments of celebration! Come join J Soto and I, as we close out this placeless space, talk about what we have ruminating, see the work, watch the dances, and say good bye to our temporary Philly home. Thanks to all who have come out! More info below!
Please join us on Sunday, December 18th at 2pm for a performance by exhibiting artist Meg Foley followed by a gallery talk exploring all of our Nov-Dec exhibitions moderated by Philadelphia Museum of Art Curator Erica Battle. Exhibiting artists Kirk McCarthy, Kelsey Halliday Johnson, Stephanie Acosta, J Soto, and Meg Foley will be on hand to discuss their exhibitions and practices- an afternoon of bodies, things, images, ideas, and of course, snacks.
Erica F. Battle is the John Alchin and Hal Marryatt Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where she has worked on exhibitions and collection building since 2006. She is currently spearheading the production of a new video installation by Rachel Rose, a project that will inaugurate a series of co-commissions and joint acquisitions between the Museum and the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin, Italy. Additional project highlights include Bruce Nauman: Contrapposto Studies, I through VII (Fall 2016); the Philadelphia presentation of International Pop, a major exhibition originating from the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2015-16); Allora & Calzadilla: Intervals, a collaboration between the PMA and the Fabric Workshop and Museum (2015); Dancing around the Bride: Cage, Cunningham, Johns, Rauschenberg, and Duchamp (2012); and Bruce Nauman: Topological Gardens, the official U.S. entry to the 53rd Venice Biennale, which garnered the Golden Lion for Best National Participation. Battle is an alumna of the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College and the University of Pennsylvania.
