ALTERED STATES: FACULTY TRIENNIAL

Showcasing the diversity of work created by the artists and designers that teach at Moore College of Art & Design, the 2016 iteration of this tri-annual presentation includes a curated selection of faculty works in a wide range of media that examine elements of the fantastic, explore transformation and different states of consciousness, are dramatically impacted by their context, and inform and/or initiate social change. Curated by John Caperton, Jensen Bryan Curator at The Print Center Philadelphia, the exhibition is complemented by a series of talks that provide a forum for Moore's faculty to discuss their practice & process and to present their research & expertise.
MAPPING THE STAGE: MICAH DANGES AND JAMES JOHNSON
September 17, 2016 – January 7, 2017
Informed in part by the formal and perceptual qualities of Fra Angelico’s fifteenth-century painting, The Healing of Justinian by Saint Cosmas and Saint Damian, Micah Danges and James Johnson’s window-front installation investigates new ways of making work with tangible, non-photographic materials and celebrates the power of inanimate objects. The project expands Danges’ and Johnson’s mutual interest in the pre-photographic representation of temporality in Renaissance painting, the relationship between images and objects – notably, the point at which the physical world ends and the image begins – and the unconventional use of photographic materials, processes and ideas.
HAND X MACHINE: SELECTIONS FROM JUMPSTART
November 12, 2016 – January 14, 2017
The annual Jumpstart fashion show challenges Moore's students to create a garment within the first few weeks of the fall semester around a specific theme. This year they found inspiration from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's recent exhibition Manus x Machina which "explores how fashion designers are reconciling the handmade and the machine-made in the creation of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear." The students utilized both handwork and technology to create designs that demonstrate how tradition meets innovation.
