JUMPSTART: RUNWAY OF BROTHERLY LOVE
November 8 - December 13, 2014
The concept for this year's Jumpstart Fashion Show was inspired by the Patrick Kelly: Runway of Love exhibition currently on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Many of Kelly's designs reflect his love of Paris; for this exhibition students were inspired by the city of Philadelphia.
GIBBS CONNORS: WALL PATTERN NUMBER 2 FOR GLASS (#MYSHRINKINGHEAD)
On view through Fall 2015 | Window on Race
A site-specific installation on The Galleries' store-front window, this work addresses the overwhelming importance of money, status and social media in today's society and pays homage to the endless appetite for distraction and the perpetual entertainment that is offered by our ever-evolving portable technologies. Drawing inspiration from domestic objects, precious metals, symbols of wealth, and goods sold to tourists, Connors’ work symbolizes the grotesque and often horrifying nature of ego, status, self-involvement, wealth and narcissism as it manifests itself in social media.
We encourage you to visit and take selfies using #myshrinkinghead on Instagram.
