Citywide: A Collective Exhibition
A group of like-minded, independent art groups currently active in Philadelphia, have come together for the CITYWIDE project. Through CITYWIDE, these groups will unify Philadelphia’s artist-run collectives in a multi-gallery month-long exhibit. Throughout November 2013, more than twenty collectives will participate in an exchange of exhibitions, ideas and practices. The multi-venue exhibit will be located in different neighborhoods throughout the city.
Locale exhibits the works of a group of artists that have all moved to Philadelphia within the past five years of their lives. The artists have documented their personal journeys through collections of works that visually chronicle how this change in setting has influenced the creative process, as we see Philadelphia metamorphose from an unfamiliar place to a new home for each artist. InLiquid Art + Design, currently approaching its fifteen year anniversary, has invited an emerging gallery space, Paradigm Gallery + Studio, to work with them to curate this exhibition at their Painted Bride venue as part of CITYWIDE: A Collective Exhibition.
