Jenny Drumgoole is a Philadelphia-based multimedia artist who incorporates photography, performance, and video into extradisciplinary actions inserted into the public domain. Her most recent video-based performance work involves the artist physically and virtually infiltrating competitive events with subversive art actions. From serving as a “wingette" at the annual Wingbowl in South Philadelphia to submitting how-to cooking videos for a Kraft Foods/Paula Deen sponsored Philadelphia Cream Cheese on-line recipe contest called “The Real Women of Philadelphia,” Drumgoole traverses art’s institutional boundaries to perform humorous, yet critical actions that raise questions about our obsessions with celebrity, desire, and the limits and illusions of individuality in popular culture. Organized by The Galleries at Moore. Guest curator Jonathan Wallis, PhD, Assistant Professor of Art History, Chair of Liberal Arts, Moore College of Art & Design.
