Barbara Kasten: Stages is the first major survey of the work of artist Barbara Kasten. Widely recognized for her photographs, since the 1970s Kasten has developed her expansive practice through the lens of many different disciplines, including sculpture, painting, theater, textile, and installation. Spanning her nearly five-decade engagement with abstraction, light, and architectonic form, this exhibition situates Kasten’s practice within current conversations around sculpture and photography. Kasten’s interest in the interplay between three- and two-dimensional forms, her engagement with staging and the role of the prop, her cross-disciplinary process, and her new approaches to abstraction and materiality are all intensely relevant to the present artistic moment, resulting in a new generation of artists who have drawn inspiration from Kasten’s aesthetic and method.

Where: Arthur Ross Gallery (On Campus!)
In 1932, Strand was invited by Carlos Chavez, director of the Fine Arts Department of the Secretariat of Public Education, to document the changing landscape and people of Mexico.
During the two years Strand spent in Mexico, he traveled the countryside with his Korona and Graflex large format cameras. He explored small towns, churches, religious icons, and the people who inhabited the land. Strand, like many of the artists who were making art at the Taller de Gráfica Popular print studio, worked on this project during the period when the post-revolution government sought to establish a modern national culture that would capture Mexico’s unique character.
Check out the exhibition on campus from now until March! More info here!
When: Thursday March 13th 2014 at 12:00am to Tuesday May 17th 2016 at 12:00am

The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is pleased to announce Cast, a group exhibition featuring the work of Dru Donovan, Amy Elkins, Tarrah Kranjak, Laurel Nakadate and Pinar Yolocan. Using the human body and variations of historic and commercial conventions of portraiture, these artists challenge the conceptual constraints of how a portrait functions while addressing issues regarding authorship and control, as well as our stereotypes and perceived sense of beauty.
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 13th, 6-9pm

Vast vistas of the tundra, sled dogs ready to run, and stark, rocky seascapes are some of the dramatic images captured in color and black and white photos by the adventurous Jilly Appleheimer in her upcoming show at Uncommon Events Gallery, 25th and Aspen Streets, Philadelphia. Her three-dimensional oil paintings of wild, fanciful flowers in exotic colors round out the exhibition.
