Guest Curator

Conrad Benner is a photographer, podcaster, curator, and Founder of StreetsDept.com, a photo-blog that discovers art on the streets of Philadelphia. Conrad was recently named ‘One of the 100 Most Influential People in Philadelphia’ by Philadelphia Magazine, his blog named one of the ‘Best Blogs for Travellers’ by The Guardian, and his photography highlighted by Mashable and Instagram as well as printed in Time Magazine and the Encyclopedia Britannica.

Established in January of 2011, Conrad’s primary focus with Streets Dept is to document and celebrate street art and graffiti, but he does also uses the blog to explore muralism and other forms of commissioned public art as well as architecture and creative public spaces. As Conrad writes on his website: “In general, I believe deeply that the public space has a profound effect on us as individuals and on our city as a whole, and my aim with Streets Dept is to explore how we build and use public spaces creatively.”

“For years, Benner has tirelessly showcased Philly’s robust street art scene though his enormously popular blog and Instagram feed, Streets Dept… He has helped bring national respect to a Philadelphia art scene that deserves it.” –The Philadelphia Inquirer (2015)

Relationships
(I always say) are never easy:
especially those between
color, shape, texture, space . . .
and tension.
The relationship of the part to the part,
the part to the whole and the relationship
of the piece to the viewer . . . no matter
what materials I use is all important.
I use titles to emotionalize these abstract
pieces to help communicate a connection
between the individual and
the universal whole.

In the metal pieces I use recycled aluminum
printing press plates which I sand,
cut and glue onto wood panels, they are
about energy and light, patterns and
motion, all influenced by the microcosm
of life forms, biology, and a
hint of satire.

Andrea Caldarise is a painter and collaborator inspired by exploring memories and happenstance conversations. Public spaces are visceral, storied environments—her art practice explores the psychological connection between landscapes and people. Each painting invokes a singular place, inspired by referencing the emotions, sights, and textures of an experience. Caldarise’s art focuses on connecting audiences with cityscapes and common, shared spaces within by capturing the experience of discovery, recreating a place through memories and imagination. Her work borders on magical realism, borrowing from observations, historical research, and surreal themes, Caldarise's artwork reveals the commonplace and extraordinary narratives in our environment.
