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.

In the long tradition of Mail Art, many objects have been compiled together from disparate networks of friends and strangers.

SAVE THE DATE!!! FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2017

Join us as we celebrate the opening of our fall exhibitions! Featured artists include Andrea Baldeck, Kay Healy, Nick Lenker, Sophia Narrett, Erin M. Riley and Ursula Von Rydingsvard. All of our shows are presented in conjunction with CraftNow, a citywide biennial celebrating Philadelphia’s rich legacy in craft and promoting the city’s continuing role as an incubator for arts based in fiber, wood, clay, metal, glass and more. 
 

NARRATIVE HORIZONS

September 16 – December 9, 2017
Narrative Horizons presents the work of three women—Kay Healy, Sophia Narrett and Erin M. Riley—whose contemporary studio practices are heavily influenced by traditions steeped in functional craft and the handmade. Presented in conjunction with CraftNOW—a citywide exhibition examining the fluid boundaries that exist around art, design and craft—this show considers how contemporary revivals of sewing, weaving and embroidery reflect the continuing feminist interest in historical technique and play a crucial role in helping these artists understand the past while addressing identity in the present and future. Artist Talk: Thursday, October 19, 6:30 pm.
 

BODYWORKS

September 16 – December 9, 2017

Bodyworks is a festival of performances, workshops and collaborative projects that examine the body as both material and tool in contemporary performance. Incorporating practices of dance, theatre, costume and sound, this exhibition brings together a diverse group of Philadelphia artists who use their bodies to engage viewers with their craft and create new spaces for social action, dialogue and representation. Presented in conjunction with CraftNOW, the Levy Gallery will be transformed into a multi-use performance space that will host a robust calendar of performances and community events. Unless otherwise noted, all events are free & open to the public and will take place in The Levy Gallery for the Arts in Philadelphia. For more information and to see a complete calendar, including a number of partner events, visit thegalleriesatmoore.org/bodyworks.

 

NICK LENKER

RECREATION: FIRST PERSON

September 16, 2017 – January 6, 2018

This exhibition addresses the complexities of dealing with identity and intimacy within virtual and digital spaces. Exploring voyeurism and performance of self, Philadelphia artist Nick Lenker uses hand-built ceramic objects, digital video and sound to transform the gallery into a narrative environment that tells the story of a character whose world is rendered through three-dimensional, digital modeling software and whose existence is the sum of the objects he collects through his journeys. Artist Talk: Thursday October 12, 6:30pm.
