ABSTRACTED MIGRATIONS: IDEAS ON EMBODIED MOTION
October 2 – December 4, 2021
Opening reception: Friday 10/1 from 4-7 pm
On view October 2 - December 4, visiting curator Kalia Brooks presents Abstracted Migrations: Ideas on Embodied Motion in The Galleries at Moore. The exhibition features the work of three artists, Firelei Baéz, Saya Woolfalk and Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum, whose practices model new modes of recognizing bodies in motion as emergent from the prospect (and consequence) of social and political forms, geographic and cultural mobility, technology and the stability of the environment in supporting the human condition.

STEPHEN WOOD: WILD LANDS
October 6 – December 4, 2021
Wood created this new body of work during a recent sabbatical, in which he set out to explore the use of the Unreal 4 game engine as a tool to create 3D animated short films. Wood utilized Physical Based Rendering systems—allowing for high quality rendering in real time and increased high resolution rendering speeds—as well as Maya LT, Photoshop, Zbrush, Quixel Mixer and Corel Painter to create a teaser that expands the world of his tabletop role-playing game, Wild Lands. The short tells the history of the moles of Dew Drop Mountains and gives the viewer a glimpse into the Mole Kingdom of Stone Burrow—one of many locations in the Underways, a new setting for players and readers to explore in the Wild Lands universe.
VISIONARY WOMEN: LORENE CARY, HOWARDENA PINDELL, AND JOAN SHEPP
October 6 – November 13, 2021
This year, Moore honored three women with the Visionary Woman Award, celebrating the rich legacy of creatives that have found inspiration and success in their hometown of Philadelphia.

July 31 – September 25, 2021

June 5 – July 17, 2021
Since the time of the ancient Egyptians, humans have adorned their fingers with ornamental jewelry. From signifying one's marital status to protecting the wearer from forces of evil, rings have served practical, symbolic and decorative purposes throughout history and across cultures. On view June 5 - July 17, RINGS! offers a glimpse into the boundless creative freedom revealed within the ring form.
Featuring work from Australia, Austria, England, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States, this international selection brings together over one hundred rings that demonstrate the artists’ wide-ranging expressions through a variety of aesthetic and conceptual ideas. From the traditional techniques of metalsmithing to avant-garde materials and approaches, the rings on view will offer a new examination of the cultural, political, and personal meanings of the ring itself.
RINGS! is organized by Helen Drutt and researched by Elizabeth Essner with assistance from Colleen Terrell.
