I am excited to have been invited to show my photography at Gallery 543, the gallery space at the Urban Outfitters corporate campus in Philadephia. The show will include many pieces from my Boat Hull series along with work from two other artists, in an exhibit titled "FOUND | at sea" featuring contemporary art inspired by the ocean.
The gallery space and headquarters are located on the Delaware River in South Philadelphia in a Navy Yard that was decommissioned in the late 1990s. After remaining abandoned for almost a decade, beginning in 2004 several of the Navy factory structures were converted into a corporate campus for Urban Outfitters. The two year process revealed and celebrated the old and practical aspects of the structures, repurposing salvaged cracked concrete slabs to use as walkway pavers, reclaiming structural timbers for staircases, and revealing the beauty of cast iron columns dating back to 1889. Placed between two of the buildings on the grounds is a decompression chamber that had been used by divers to repair the hulls of ships. Hulls!! The exhibit will be up from May 3rd to May 30th, and I can't wait to see it.
Details below about the above show in Philadelphia, as well as other upcoming events and exhibits. As previously posted, I am currently in the Spring Group Show at the Roman Fine Art gallery in East Hampton through May 20th, which also features the work of some of my favorite contemporary artists, including Swoon, Grant Haffner, and Michael Dweck. Don't miss it.
