Philadelphia Field Trip is Sunday Feb. 5!

Department — faculty @ 12:15 pm, Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

8.00 a.m. Departure from Baltimore! Meet in front of the Main Building

10:30 a.m. Arrival for visit of The Galleries at Moore: Depth of Surface/Doing Time http://www.philagrafika.org/gomez-and-gonzalez.html

Spanish artists María Jesús González and Patricia Gómez are creating large-scale prints, photographs and related videos during their artist residency at the decommissioned Holmesburg Prison in Northeast Philadelphia. This historic prison was built in 1896 following the widely replicated wheel and spoke plan designed by John Haviland for the Eastern State Penitentiary in 1829. It was in use for nearly a century, finally closing its doors in 1995. The artists’ prints are a physical archive of the prison cells—including paint, drawings and markings left by the inmates who lived there.

11:30 Leave for Chinatown/Fabric Workshop

12:00 and 12:45 and 1:15 The Fabric Workshop

You will be broken down into three groups to see the exhibitions

Nick Cave: Let’s C http://www.fabricworkshopandmuseum.org/Exhibitions/Default.aspx

The exhibition Let’s C highlights recent, prominent sculptural and performative works by Chicago-based artist Nick Cave, who is currently in residence at The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM). The exhibition features Cave’s iconic “Soundsuits”—which function in chorus as dance costumes, sculptures, and extensions of one’s persona—video of recent performance, and, for the first time, Architectural Forest: an ambitious, floor-to-ceiling installation of ornamented bamboo. This forest serves as a playful yet mysterious landscape in which Cave’s December 16th performance at FWM takes place. For over two decades, Nick Cave has constructed Soundsuits out of a litany of unique, found materials, such as crocheted hats, plastic sandwich bags, gleaming buttons, stuffed animals, and other items from thrift stores, flea markets, and estate sales. Their sculptural form functions simultaneously to display and conceal through the visual references to the exuberance of masquerade and the protection of body armor.

1:00 and 1:45 Optional trip to the Vox Populi

http://www.voxpopuligallery.org/

Interested in seeing the exhibition at Vox?  Please e-mail Eva Wylie: ewylie@mica.edu

BREAK/Lunchtime on your own: There are many great places to eat in Chinatown or at the Reading Terminal Market-Both are very close to the Fabric Workshop and Vox.

2:30 Bus pick up at the Fabric Workshop and Museum

2:45 Philadelphia Museum of Art for Zoe Strauss: Ten Years (n.b.: Pay what you wish Sunday!). http://philamuseum.org/exhibitions/745.html

Zoe Strauss: Ten Years is a mid-career retrospective of the acclaimed photographer’s work and the first critical assessment of her ten-year project to exhibit her photographs annually in a space beneath a section of Interstate-95 (I-95) in South Philadelphia. Strauss’s subjects are broad but her primary focus is on working-class experience, including the most disenfranchised people and places. Her photographs offer a poignant, troubling portrait of contemporary America.
