Featuring: Bryant Girsch
Join us for a Panel Discussion of Casual Sequence at Spillway and learn how a critique group of recent Philly MFA Graduates came to organize a multi-media exhibition.
Moderated by Collective member and show curator Kate McCammon and guest co-curator Kimi Pryor, the discussion will focus on the practices of the six exhibiting artists, the process of curating the works, and the themes found in Casual Sequence.
The exhibition is a group show featuring works by Dave Pettengill, Matt Higgins, Travis Grant, Bryant Girsch, Sam Jones, and co-curator Kimi Pryor. The pieces presented are reflective of chains of investigations in which each move propels the next. Through repetitions of form, color, object-ness, and surface, the works ricochet off one another and create a dance between nostalgic, digital, textual, and textural portals. Each investigation meets an intersection—whether it is the painterly encountering the digital, the mundane merging with the uncanny, or the found joining the manufactured. Learn about these intersections, their playful slippage and fluid meanings, as the artists describe their “casual”—or unpremeditated—practices an how those methods are echoed in the curatorial process.
Snacks and beverages will be provided.
