We present and incubate work by contemporary artists, community-oriented art organizations, and art institutions who reflect the diversity that surrounds us — targeted to an extensive local-global exchange in cross-cultural programming.
An inclusive work lab that seeks to articulate a complete program of themed discussions, exchanges, work tables, coaching practices, and live stream dialogues, studio visits, focused exhibitions, and workshops with artists, curators, scholars, and critics. Within a constant flow of information from the local artistic fabric in its connections to national and international creative communities.
Possible through comprehensive apprenticeship, exhibitions, and curatorial projects. The Contemporary Art Lab programs are expected to reach thousands of people each year, as a platform for research and circulation of contemporary artistic practices.
Philadelphia embraces the creative components to become a vital global contemporary art hub. It’s the right time on the expanding global cultural role of Philadelphia. We are committed to being active proponents of this vibrant experience. Photo: Sjors Lodewijk (c)
