FIVE INTO ONE
May 25 – June 24, 2017
Hosted by The Galleries at Moore College of Art & Design and organized by Philadelphia Sculptors, 5 Into 1 features work by recent graduates from BA, BFA and MFA programs at five Philadelphia art & design schools. Participating schools include Moore College of Art & Design, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Tyler School of Art at Temple University, University of Pennsylvania and The University of the Arts. This year’s exhibition presents works by eighteen artists in a variety of mediums that demonstrate “transformation” of some kind.
ANNUAL ALUMNI EXHIBITION
June 3 – August 19, 2017
Featuring recent works by Moore alumni, the selections on view in this year’s exhibition represent a variety of degree programs including Fashion Design, Fine Arts, Illustration, Photography & Digital Arts and Textile Design, among others. Showcasing a wide variety of mediums and skill sets, this presentation includes over twenty-five artworks that, together, provoke contemplation of a dystopian future. Though some works document reality, others are the result of imaginative abstraction and creative vision where people, animals and objects become mysterious creatures in their own landscapes. Curated by Robert Chaney, Director of Curatorial Affairs, ICA Philadelphia and Tory Savery, Founding Director, Savery Gallery, Philadelphia.
DRAWING ON & ON /// MAIL ART ED.
June 3 – July 25, 2017
An exhibition of drawings by Social & Studio Practices faculty, alumni and current students. Building on the 2016 exhibition Drawing On and On which grew out of a live, one day drawing rally event, this exhibition will extend the life of the drawings on view by soliciting contributions via mail. In the long tradition of Mail Art, many objects have been compiled together from disparate networks of friends and strangers.
