The Block @ The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center

September 8, 2016 - November 26, 2016

Event Navigation

Opening Reception: September 8 | 6 – 8 PM
On View: September 8 – November 26


As part of the Philly Block Project, the final exhibition The Block is an immersive experience using photographs from South Kensington’s present, made by Hank Willis Thomas, Wyatt Gallery, Lisa Fairstein, Hiroyuki Ito, and Will Steacy. The floor-to-ceiling photographs will act as the armature of the show, stitching together a block of houses, while smaller photographs revel in the many perspectives and details found within a three¬†block radius.


Major support for Philly Block Project has been provided by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, with additional support from Penn Treaty Special Services District, The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
